Haven't posted pics of this one here. Its a c1984-1985 Fillet Brazed Bontrager built by Keith himself. It was in the MOMBAT collection. Like a lot of those bikes it sat for a long time so, while the bike came complete, it needed a full rebuild.

I opted to change the spec with some period correct bits...
