I just picked up this bike, and am in the process of stripping off all the commuter crap and 'upgrades' done over the years. Taking it back to original spec or close to. Such a great frame/decal colour scheme. Tig welded 4130 chromoly with fillet brazed seat cluster.

Ritchey bikes have such perfect proportions.

Great colour scheme on that. Very tidy. Wherever you go that stem should arrive about 2 minutes before you ;-)

What a great looking bike/project. Lots of love for early Ritchey’s and loving the “proper” length stem. Looking forward to seeing this progress.
