Started threads for my other primary builds, so figured I would start a thread on this one also. Had a green 85 Ritchey that was just a touch too small for me. Through the wonders of the internet I just traded it off for a different B frame. Now waiting patiently for it's arrival. I will hold off on posting one of the few photo's I have of it for now. Plan is to get this bike together as my vintage rider for the upcoming season. I should have everything I need to get it together. No intention at this time to keep parts to the proper year, I will be happy if everything outside of tires are from the proper decade. I will post a few pictures upon arrival. For now, waiting patiently.

Yea,
I look forward to your C frame also.
Did you start a build thread that I missed?
Cheers,

That's a negative on the thread, though I have started messing with it a bit.

This will be my vintage rider for the upcoming season. 1984 TimberWolf. Set a goal of keeping most everything pre 85. Silver, and no Shimano. Didn't have any rear brakes that fit the bill so put some 986's on it just to start riding the bike. Realized things were starting to get dirty fast and if I was going to have any clean pic's, I had better take them 986's or not.
