1983 Ritchey Everest


Retro Guru
This was a longterm project... and still is ;-), the build was finished March 2020 but now is the time to post it here.
It is a restoration with several parts which took a lot of work to get them in perfect condition but now i'am satisfied with the result.
It !s ridden every once in a while on a sunny dry day but i prefer to keep it in this condition.
All parts, including the tires, are period and catalogue correct.

So sweet. Very nicely done.

(As an aside, would superbikes like this benefit from 2 sets of ‘clothes’: 1. Show/best NOS/catalogue. 2. Era sympathetic but rideable? Eg wheels/tyres, freewheel, chainset, pedals, saddle - even brakes - could be swapped out easily for riding, with the good stuff kept pristine. Sure, the paint might take a hit, but if it’s been repainted, it can be again, and if original, it’s probably already wearing a few scars with pride and wouldn’t mind a couple more.)
