That is very, very nice :D

Never seen a Ritchey fork like that before.

What's the story behind the bike - is it original?

It's all original as far as I know...the R1 saddle had a little scuff on it so I swapped it for a cleaner one. Aside from that, I got the bike as you see it from a gentleman in Missouri. The drivetrain was super clean when I got it - not much for me to do except polish it up and shoot some photos.

Will shoot a few more after I trim the brake cables....forgot to do that.

Very, very, very nice bike :D

...is this the one that was on the bay last week (or a week earlier) ?

I've been keeping an eye on that one, 'cause I really like the '93 model with that fork. As far as I know, they only did these forks in '93... Super nice fork with a nice short A-C-measurement.. 8)

Perhaps it needs some Ritchey tires to top of the whole...
