    Ď81 Ritchey Everest rescued!

    Scored this 1981 Ritchey Mountainbike Everest recently at an estate sale.
    Disregard the brake levers and shifter extensions mess, the PO had it mounted on a trainer with road downbars. Iíve added a set of bullmoose bars but have more to do there to complete that area. The gold anodized Araya rims were at the house so I bought those, I believe they were original to this bike before the wheels were changed to the Saturaes it currently has. Matching gold Campagnolo BMX pedals were at the house too.
    Some of the components have been changed but itís pretty era correct. The Imron paint has held up much better than the decals. I plan to swap the wheels back to the gold Arayas, clean up the Brooks MTB saddle and find some gumwall tires.
    Iím really happy to have gotten it, especially since I fit the frame!
