We have here a couple of Ibis Icons that were built by the owner, Wes Williams, during his tenure as welder at Ibis. He is making a move to Texas and trying to lighten the load.
The first bike is a Custom model #104 made in 1985 and totally rebuilt in 1988 using a Mavic/Suntour XC Pro group, featuring:
Mavic MA-40 rims
Ti Stem/Prestige Bar
WTB Rollercam front brake, Shimano U chainstay brake
The 1st IBIS to be built with a 1 3/8" down tube
Painted in Pumpkin Gloss
I have more pictures but will not bother taking the time to post them as the new picture system is too slow. Will send to serious folks only. If you just want to shoot the breeze about the old days at Ibis this is not the venue.....But this bike is in what I would call pristine condition and has not been ridden for the last 15 years as that is when Wes switched to riding 700c.
The next item is Wes Williams personal Scorcher that was made after the initial run of 100 plus 2 prototypes making it #103. It is show ready and contains the following tids and bits:
Mavic Track Group with newer Campy rear hub
Mavic Mod 3 Rims shod with Conti Goliaths
Ti Post with Brooks Saddle
Mocha Brown Gloss
If you have ever wanted a Scorcher this is the one. Fixed Gear Heaven. I have more pictures available to serious souls.
I will try and answer questions but please realize that these bikes are more than the sum of their parts, they are each a piece of history pie. If you need to know the angles and weights etc. of these bikes, look elsewhere.
