    Cook Bros Racing Alpine Circa 1983

    Haven't found out much about these bikes. The info I got from the previous owner said they were made in batches and this was from the third and final batch in 1983. The components that came with the bike would be indicative of a bike from then so it is possible. We built it up with mostly era correct parts. The Cyclart paint is a little tattered. The Reynolds 531 tandem bladed fork needed a little straightening (not perfect, but better) and a brake mount repair. A guy from one of the local NASCAR teams was able to repair the brake mount with very minimal paint loss. The loop stays with plate drop outs are pretty neat but the derailleur mount sure looks vulnerable. The only other one I have seen is the yellow frame at the MBHOF. Anyone else have any more info?

    Anyone have a picture of the yellow one at the MBHOF? That was super clean but I think it was just a frame?
