An oldie comes back to roost

 I built this bike in 1994  in the old Gross rd. location. This is a 650-A fillet brazed road frame , fork and stem with some small lug-like appointments. The paint was done by Mark Bunten ( Dr. Deltron) who retired from painting a number of years ago. He used a 'sponge texture' technique that had a bit of popularity back then. The rider was very small, just over 5' so the 650 wheels were a good match .
 The gearing is insanely wide with a special triple adaptor lever on the left shifter. Back in these days there were no triple STI levers. This bike was ridden a lot back in the day but has sat idle for maybe a decade. It will now reside in my shop-a very unique bike from over 20 years ago.
