I'll divulge the identity of the bike later, but for now I'll keep you all guessing (although it won't take long for many of you to figure it out). I've been on the hunt for one of these for a couple years now. A few weeks ago I happened to ask the right person the right question which led me to this beauty. I bought her as a frame, fork, headset and stem. She's been locked up in a basement by her second owner for the last 15 years and supposedly only ridden 4 miles.

Here it is, poorly packed, bouncing around inside the box on it's trip to me (why is it so hard for some people to properly pack a bike?):

More to come...
