    I think Ritchey might still have those. I got an older version from them a bit back. Cheap too...

    84 Team Comp 19"

    Serial # 9C10

    Got this with approximately 260 original miles (original odometer, see photo) on it. Owned by a little old lady, literally, in Portland, OR.

    It came to me with wierd plastic 27 inch fenders, a Sachs Huret odometer, comfort seat, Specialized Street Stomper tyres, Jim Blackburn rear rack and original receipt. I took all of these things off and saved them.

    It needed a good clean and grease.

    The paint is 99% and the overall condition is near perfect.

    I put on Mathauser brake pads, cables inners and outers, grips, tyres (just temporary until I find some interesting period ones), and a different seat. I have and will keep all the other original bits that I replaced.

    LeicaLad noted and wrote on this forum that for some reason it seems these bikes, 84 Team Comp, were well cared for or not ridden much. This one certainly fits that.

    It was fun to restore and have it come out so nice.

    If I can make a request....I would love to see your bikes in its own threads because, frankly, you are quite the restoration guy.

    Just a thought!

    I can only imagine what your other bikes look like! :D

    Do you have pics of the full frame? The "A" was used for early Everest frames which morphed into the Team Comp frame, and later was used to designate Annapurna frames. Seeing the details at the seat cluster and the head tube "lugs" would help determine what decals the bike likely came with.

    I have seen most of Sqrootof2's bikes. All I can say is as nice as his pictures are, seeing them in person was amazing. Every one of them are over the top beautiful.

    Looks like you did it again.

    Nice.....

    OK Ritchey fans...identify this rider! This is a signed Ritchey Race Jersey I dug out of the archives this afternoon, vintage 95-96 if my memory serves me. I know for sure that three of the four signatures belong to Shari Kain, Thomas Frischknecht, and Warren Sallenbach, but I will be damned if I can remember who the other rider is! First MTBR member to identify the fourth gets kicked in the junk by me!
