    My 86 fillet brazed Salsa Scoboni, built to OldManRiding's spec back in the day. An absolute joy to ride.





    91 Salsa Ala Carte I built as an SS cruiser for the wife. It actually has a proper Bontrager Comp fork on it now...need to get updated pics.

    Thats a beauty.

    Here's one I had that got sent off to a loving home at Monkey Wrench Cycles. I had it built with drop bars at one point but no pics:

    any of you guys see that fillet brazed 91 that was just clear coated on the bay about 3 years ago? (ok, a long time I know!)

    My personal Salsa obsession stems from a UK rider called Jason MCroy who rode a jellybean a la carte in around '93 ish I guess, right when i was getting into Mountain Bikes, It goes so far as having a '90 a la carte, a couple of mugs, as many spare salsa branded parts as i can find and at least a salsa sticker, if not more salsa components, on every bike I own... (used to have an el kaboing frameset too, but it was too big to justify keeping).

    I think they appeal to me because whilst Ibis/Fat etc etc made similarly nice frames, Salsa always had that air of eccentricity, or perversity if you like, that will always make them special.

    ill post pics if I can find them!

    (oh, and DoubleCentury, looks like your a la carte may fit me, just in case you need to find it a new home at any point!)

    Here's a few...

    Got this one new in '85. It used to be a metallic charcoal. Was repainted when the down tube was replaced a year later.





    The wife's rider






    This one recently passed through my hands and is now on its way back to its second owner. I used to ride with the original owner back when it was new in the mid 80's.


    A few bars and stems.

    almost? What percentage of his asking price were you willing to plunk down?

    Actually, you'd be surprised to know how much he was willing to negotiate. In the end though, I wasn't willing to pay that much for a garage queen. The temptation to ride it would be too great. Probably the hardest bike related purchase I've ever let go.

    yeah, I remember he came down quite a bit (half or so?) from his first price, but even that was fairly outrageous. Maybe he came down yet again?

    But I agree, I like them to have a bit of a patina and another thing I personally didnt like is that it was a restoration and not original... Beautiful bike though.

    Yeah, it was a little lower than half. But still, I just couldn't see myself recovering from buyer's remorse.

    He claimed it was restored by Ross himself. Not sure if that counts for anything with the original condition crowd.

    The original owner is a Cowboy Boot salesman and the second owner is my wife. She so misses that bike.

    Thanks! She picked the colors and Cyclart painted it. Cowboy boot salesman - almost forgot that. I just remember sitting in the bar across the street from the shop drinking beer with him and marveling that we were drinking 1:1 (my one pint to his one pitcher!).

    Mike,
    I would like to applaud you for leaving that WTB Rollercam on the wifes bike. I think most guys would have switched it to their bike.

    Don't think I've thought about it more that once or twenty times The fact is is that her brakes work so well now that I'm scared to change. I've got the Suntour working pretty good on mine and I've got a secret stash of...well, let's not get into that in the Salsa thread
