I’ve seen it as well. One thing is for sure and that is that this is not a Ritchey frame.

Think this is the third frame I came across in Holland in different frame sizes.

There must be someone who makes ritchey replicas I guess.

I am not a ritchey fanatic but at First it looked like a real ritchey to me.

Exactly my thoughts. Is there a way to contact ritchey if this frame is known or that it is a 100% fake.

I called the seller of the frame he said he bought it years ago in a bike shop second hand and that it is a real ritchey frame. He was not at home but was Going to check the s/n. His price is 350 euro....

Not a Ritchey : the seat stays are filed brazed directly on the seat post nut and the top of seat is like a lug. And I don't think that Ritchey got screw holes on the top of seat stays.
On other hand, the "Ritchey component" of the downtube only says that the bike use Ritchey Component. Not that the bike is a Ritchey
