    Squadcar, a professional from back in the day is in our midst.

    I know the introduction thread isn't browsed by many people, so I decided to post this here.

    A new member squadcar has replied to a couple of posts here already.

    Check out his intro:

    Proteus Bicycles

    It is indeed an honor when a someone with direct knowledge from the days when the bikes we love were built stops by, and is willing to share that knowledge.

    Let's not let the opportunity to ask questions pass us by.

    ... Darwin

    To squadcar:

    Welcome! I think I saw you respond in a thread about a very large proteus. Unfortunately I know very little about the make. Where they custom build in your shop?

    Question for squadcar: first off: welcome! We're privileged to receive your contributions.
    Back at least a year ago (probably 2) there was a mystery bike shown that had "PD" engraved somewhere on the frame. It's been so long I can't remember where the engraving was located. Many clues pointed to it being a US-built frame, and...I wonder if you recall those initials ever being engraved on Proteus Bicycles?
    DOH!, nevermind! I happened to find the old thread and you ALREADY answered the question! That's amazing, and turns out it IS a Proteus. We love a happy ending and a positive ID!
