    To be period correct perhaps a MIJ Strong post they had a couple styles available then or maybe something from SR CT-P5 or even a Sugino SP-CK all were made back then. All were fluted too. From what I recall in the 85-6 era at least half the seat posts spec'd were still Japanese made.
    Needed: 26.8mm XTR seatpost, blue GT/Grundig Jersey.

    That would be my oldest son, Seth. He does have an eye for it.

    When did the tradition of a coin in the stem begin?

    Any details or stories regarding this?

    Stunning bike. And +1 on the quality photos.

    my only story on those is that when Otis Guy saw that my 86ish Otis was missing one, he made one for me.

    I think they just found one that fit which made an interesting plug. Looks a lot better than a flat plate or bar end plug!

    Thanks. Jus' curious. Matt sent along an Indian Head nickle with the '84 Ritchey, but the bike has that fancy wooden plug. The nickle is on the wall over my desk, so I look at it every day. Still trying to decide if/when to do it.
