They actually pop up from time to time.
That little hub right there came from Italy.

The hard part was the fork...an actual Tioga Showa fork that has a good chance of being one of John's old forks. I don't recall ever being available to the public.
Well...and the frame was hard to get too. ;)

I'll second that. :D

The JTR was my Holy Grail...that ended up my Holy Grail.
It's the bike that more or less got me into collecting (hunting).


That's a beaut Rumpfy. You got it build? Ridden it yet?

rin way give a shout!


Yep, quite close!

We get up there every so often for swap meets and such.

Fairfax Fat Tire Festival is a good event to hit.

A lot of older vintage bike stuff up that way which most of us Yanks tend to enjoy. :)


Are you Sea Otter bound?
