Here is my early Annapurna. Apparently Charlie Kelly helped put this one together since he remembers the hassle of it. Before the "Annapurna" model was made official (and given its own serial number identification, i.e. the "A" bikes) Ritchey's top end "C" (Competition) bikes had the option of being made with "fake" lugs. In addition to the fake lugs option, this bike has custom annodized parts, chroming and the original owner's initials, done Ritchey-style, on the seat tube. A neat bike, if I may say so myself.

For once BP, you may say so yourself - with impunity! ;-) :-)

Hard to imagine this fine steed going hell for leather down the Repack mind... any Zingel-style action shots available??

This one is too big for me. I am fixing up an "A" Annapurna that is my size and will one-day have action shots for.

That would fit me just fine.....

Ever think of entering it on BOTM. A lot of bling there. I think it might win........

Did you check the other pics on TastyDirty? That's all I've got right now. Yea, gold isn't really my thing, but it works on this one.

No, I didn't. Is that one open for everyone to see? If so, I will definitely check it out, thanks.

True, it does work; that's a good looking bike.
