Any ideas as to worth?
If you're holding out because you think I'm trying to flip it, I'm not. I already left Rick a message at D&D Cycles about decals and a repaint. Thank you Bob for the lead and the phone number.
I came across MuttsButts on Velospace who has a beautiful '85 1/2 Ritchey Timber, he is the original owner and it looks as nice as the day he bought it. He told me that he paid $1,150.00 when new. Mine will never be what his is, near perfect, 95% original condition. I'm not building a trophy bike. Mine is beat, parts have been swapped, still with Ritchey parts at least, I plan to build to ride. Maybe some nice new XT or XTR parts to go along with the XT already onboard. Everything I've ever known about Tom's bikes is how plush the ride is and how they climb like a goat. Plus, the beautiful craftsmanship is a big bonus too.
I need something to tell my insurance guy... is this worth noting on my policy, like my wife's Simonetti race bike, or should I not bother? I honestly don't know how often early Ritchey bikes pop up on the radar, hence why I turned to you guys. Thanks for the help so far, please keep it coming!
