I got this frame in a package deal with some other parts I bought. I have no info on it...

All I was told is that it's a ritchey... Serial number is "0##"

thanks!

Nice! Looks like an Ultra to my amateur eye?

What makes you think it's a Ritchey? Send me pics of the rear dropouts and serial number and some detailed pics of the welds. did someone tell you it's a Ritchey because it has Ritchey dropouts? Can you feel the triple butting along the top tube and the down tube? Lastly detailed pics of the bottom bracket.

Hi, I'm 100% sure it's a ritchey
- Shimano Dropouts
- no butting on seat tube... it's lugged
- Bottom bracket has only serial number... "0##"
- weight would not help you
- size is 17.5

Dropouts aren't canted and the seat tube isn't ovalized.

Not a ritchey

Ritchey only used Ritchey dropouts. They were so good my Serotta has them. Sorry to bum you out, It's not a Ritchey. Do a search on early 80's mountain bikes that used Shimano dropouts and you'll find the make of your frame. hope this help and best of luck to you mate!
