Hi Forum members. I was going post this as a can name this bike. But I don't have the time to do a follow up.
The original owner purchased this bike in 1995. The only non original parts are the cassette, chain, handle bar and brake pads. The frame is hand made by Derek Bailey (also known as Billy B). The serial number on the bb shell is 036.

that's a nice looking RM road bike! 8)

still kind of wished i had managed to snag the Team Giro in red/white a while back. they look very similar in geometry/design. guessing they're both probably close in year?

The team looks 80's and the one in this post looks early 90's
Mainly from the stickers on it anyway.

Would be interesting to know more.

There was a DB built Rocky Mountain race bike on the local Craigslist recently - my size too. Very tempting, but if I get another road bike it needs to be L'Eroica legal. I have a friend with what I believe to be an 80's vintage RM road bike as well. They definitely were a smaller part of their business BITD, but from my browsing of old catalogues they seemed to be making them in the early years.
