    This bike did not look like anyone had ridden it very hard, and the owner didn't strike me at all as a cyclist. He was not a collector or the type to be doing much to the bike. I would bet he had the bike since it was new and when he was 50# lighter.

    He might even entertain an offer on it, if anyone but me knew where it was.

    Fashion:

    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    Two nice bikes Tim!!

    Here is another from a website. Ritchey MountainBikes

    Since the web is not like a book where you can refer back to it years in the future; I thought it best to post some of the photos and most of the description because the links might go out of date or don't work which is very frustrating and useless for research.

    Serial number 2R089

    I don't see it on the oldmountainbikes site yet.

    Quote copied from the site: CycleEXIF

    " Most local bike shops will have a token classic or collectable bike displayed somewhere, attestation to the proprietor’s favored genre or the shop’s specialty. Long had I admired the vintage mountain bike strung up on the wall of Sydney’s City Bike Depot, which, upon inquiry, revealed the brilliant story of a founding father of off-road cycling — Tom Ritchey.
    As it turns out, this frame is stamped 2 R 0 8 9 — the 89th Tom assembled under the Ritchey MountainBikes banner, circa 1983. It was purchased by the founding father of City Bike Depot, Hugh, who purchased it from the first owner, complete with original catalog and sales receipt. According to Wikipedia, Tom Ritchey’s partnership with Gary Fisher and Charlie Kelly dissolved in 1983, making this one of the first frames Ritchey fillet brazed in the first year of business.

    The condition is what realtors would call ‘a renovators dream’, but the paint only hides what would be as fine as any fillet brazing seen these days. Ritchey was known for breaking away from the lugged tradition for off-road-specific frames, describing the joins in his catalog as ‘perfectly radiused fillets’. The component list vividly describe the era, when Magura supplied brake levers straight from the motorcycle basket, as they had not yet developed a bicycle version: there’s still allowances for indicators and a throttle cable. The gearing is appropriately wide, catered for by a TA Specialites triple crankset and selected by early Suntour thumbies. It’s all rolling on a beautiful pair of original Wheelsmith wheels, the rear hiding an interesting detail: the California Bicycle License sticker.

    Hugh is very proud to be the custodian of such an important piece of cycling’s history, his only regret is that his contact did not opt for the slightly more expensive original ‘Bullmoose’ handlebars, handmade by Tom himself. Perhaps the Specialized stem and bars are just as significant, they may have been inspired by Tom’s trademark mustache.

    Massive thanks to Hugh and the guys at City Bike Depot in Sydney’s central business district, especially Matt, for his photographic assistance. Hugh and Adam completed the Three Peaks Challenge last weekend, a fund raiser for cancer research, so better give them a couple of days before dropping by the shop. Make sure you do, though, even if it’s just to ogle Tom Ritchey’s frame #89."

    I'm in the same boat. I have a beautiful 84 Team Comp (original owner) that just finishing a retro rebuild on. She is quite the looker, but until I post a few more messages everyone will nust have to wait.

    Cheers
