    Ritchey chicken coop frame

    I was lucky enough to just buy a Ritchey 1980 "Chicken Coup" frame.

    Anybody have a lead on some of the appropriate parts I'll need for a build? Specially a Bi Plane fork.

    Thanks,

    John

    Yeah, where are the pics man??!!

    It deserves to have a Bull Moose handlebar.

    If it we're me I'd be riding it, and so would put modern good brakes and levers on.

    I'd find some headset locking ring, like the Gorilla or something.

    What size seatpost does it accept?

    Those bikes came without forks or braze-ons, so they were finished with whatever could be found. You're in the same boat. Don't expect to find an original Ritchey fork, just use something that is age appropriate.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.
