    In Search Of A Balfa Belair - Size Long - Can you help?

    Hello,

    This may seem like a sort of weird request, but I'm in search of a Long Balfa Belair frame or frame and fork combination.

    I used to rep part time for Balfa here in Connecticut and owned a regular Belair for a bit. Always had fun on that bike, but I should have bought a Long from the start.

    trying to find one again to build up as a light trail bike.

    Can anyone help me locate one? My primary contact at Balfa back then was Stephane Amyot - if anyone knows Steph - can you tell him that Mark McGrath is looking for a Belair. Maybe he still has a couple of his own personal frames he'd like to sell.

    Please feel to contact me via this thread or via email at mmcg25@gmail.com

    Thanks!

    Mark
