This grail fell into my lap on Friday morning, so I carped the diem. Very grateful. Built ca 1981 and 21st century-ized by the previous owner, to whom I am grateful for that.

Man, what is better than a classic green steel bike? Hope it rides as good as it looks!

That is a fantastic-looking and beautifully-finished bicycle. Just the right amount of fork rake and chainstay length atmo etc.

Will you be selling something vaguely comparable in era and materials to make space for it? Asking for a friend, as they say.

That logo belongs on an art deco theater marquee. What a looker!
