Would I be right in saying that this is not a later Herting cut and shut (not meant in a disparaging way) but rather made from genuine tubes and lugs a while ago?
How do you define genuine tubes, lugs and rear ends??? Not to sidetrack from ERs good work here, but remember that all of these bikes were originally made by CH from the same Easton C9 tubes and FRO rear ends as many (most?) of the replica C bikes made today are (some exceptions I'm sure). I mean, same guy, same material, same labor just separated by a couple of decades. Why the disclaimers???
As far as I'm concerned any bike made by CH then and now is the same. The main difference being that maybe the old ones were ridden by a famous dude or chick. Don't get me wrong that's a huge thing, but the guts of the thing are the same no matter who rode it!
PS. Pete - I wasn't really aiming that question directly at you... your's was just the last comment about genuine tubes and all...
