    97 Comp

    Parts wise, this is probably the most bastardized Comp you will ever see, but there is a story behind it! The frame was given to me by Ritchey while I was working for one of their parts distributors. Then virtually all the other parts I managed to beg, borrow or steal off of some of our other suppliers. The Pulstar hubs were given to me by Kirk Hoeppner the inventor, and are a hand made prototype.

    Bastardized or not. Still a great looking ride.

    Sorry about the suck photo. This was hanging high on a wall next to a skylight.

    I put this in BCC, but it belongs here because the guy is not riding it to the post office. He knows what he has.

    Original owner, he still has the receipt I wrote for him in 1982.

    CL find of the week.

    1989 Ascent Comp in nice red and black fade. Full XT730. Appears to be mostly stock except the wheels and seat. It came with some Walmart Mongoose wheels(???) and a newer seat. Luckily I had a set of gray Matrix rims laced to black XT hubs and Megabite tires. I also had a Flite saddle but would rather have a turbo or Ritchey. The frame size is 21.5. Too big for me but I'll make do considering the price.

    Just on the basis of the rear brake....the frame looks to be like an 83 or something.

    This is the same bike that I posted starting back on page 31, and we chatted about for a bit.
    Serial number is 9C14. And here's another shot.

    Such a good looker. It seems that Tom made about 75 (give or take a dozen) of these, pretty much exactly alike. But this particular series, the initial C series, seems to have been too pretty to ride, 'cause so many of them turn up in near pristine condition.

    I'm grateful, of course. I do believe that I was the first person to ever ride the '84 that was passed on to me by Matt. I still tend to treat it with kid gloves and really haven't even gotten it dirty. I think I need to find another one that is already a bit beat, just so I can ride it!

    YMMV, of course.

    Tom does awesome work, a true legend. Been on here before but needs to be in this thread:













    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.....

    Me, no. I save the krylon for my klunker projects.
    I just got lucky and showed up at the shop last Saturday after it had been stripped and lightly blasted.
    Thus the reason for the crappy cell phone pics on such a beautiful piece. For all I know, it might be painted already.....
    Like a little kid waiting for Christmas.
