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?


Thanks John.

It's very, very close actually.
This one will be a wall hanger.
I've got a second that will be a rider.

The Tomac that Andrea picked up is pretty nice though.

Craig Mitchell built me a chrome-moly diamond frame in 1976 that was as far as I know the first custom bike built for downhill.

I didn't like the way it handled, and silly me, I sold it back to Craig. The only photograph I have of it is on my website, but it's not very good.

I didn't even consider that it was a historic bike, and for the amount of money involved, less than $200, I should have kept it.

I understand that the bike may have made its way to Australia, but I have no way of confirming that. Craig Mitchell is long deceased, so anything he knew about it is gone.

My holy grail was a GT Psyclone, now it´s a Xizang in clean condition.

But all time: Manitou FS, Breezer Jet Stream, Cloud 9, Ritchey P-20
