Re Witcomb USA

Here's a little brief from CR that may make the frame more attractive:

One of the more interesting tales of the USA bike scene, WITCOMB USA was started in the early 1970's in Connecticut by Ed Allen, of Gerry gear and Sports East fame. He at first imported frames by Barry Witcomb, of the successful UK business of the same name. When USA production was started, young USA staff members included Ed Sinkus ("Sky-Lo-Lo"), Chris Chance, Richard Sachs and J.P. Weigle ("Peter".) Witcomb USA finally succumbed due to tipsy bicycle market conditions and disappeared after 8 years of doing business.... But this was not the end of the story. The heritage continues today in the work of acknowledged USA master builders Richard Sachs and Peter Weigle.
