Steve Potts #009. Mark Slates personal bike. Potts made the frame. Cunningham made the crown for the type I and Potts made the legs. Fork also has a Cunningham / Potts decal. Wheels and bike built by Mark Slate. Pre WTB. All original except for tires and tubes. Second to the right in the last pic. Mark´s brother Larry finished it at the 17th fastest time down repack.

Hope you enjoy. :)

I don't have the rest of the article I am afraid.

Long story short. I tried to buy a Etto helmet of eBay and came to talk with the guy selling. I asked if he had anything else cool, and he asked what I was looking for. Told him Ird, WTB, Potts and Ham, and he said he had all of them. He also has Mark Slates Cunningham. He bought the Potts of Marks brother Larry and he has bought a lot of stuff from Mark as well. He is not active on Facebook or any of the foras even though some collectors in the US know him well and his bikes. It then took me another two years until he sold it to me. He needed the money to fund a Potts gravel bike. So I bought this 6 months ago. It will however relocate to a good new permanent home in 2-3 months (it has already been made a deal so it's not for sale) since I have been offered a Cunningham and I can't let that probably once in a lifetime opurtunity pass. I can't afford it without letting this go though + a couple of more bikes and parts. But the Potts will stay in Europe.

But I can say that it's a great fun cruiser and I could probably park it anywhere without it getting stolen. :)

We can test your "park it anywhere" theory in my neighborhood!
