I own the '59 version of that bike. I can't find the links from when I researched mine, but definitely 1960s. The Bianchi Sport decal changed in 1960. Fantastic bike for putting around on with the...

I've use them. They are a period restoration tire and work perfectly for that use. If you are a rider that pushes the envelope on the trails, get modern rubber.

It's a Land Shark. It's a one off custom so it makes comparing it to other frames to get a date nearly impossible. And yes, chainstay brakes so I think my date range is close. XT 730 came out in...

Can anyone put a date on this tubing decal?

I'm trying to put a date to a frame I recently purchased. I was told '85-'86 by the seller, but I think it's more likely '87-'88. It's a mountain bike so a period build is completely different for...

You won't like my answer, but that's not a Crazy Pete - seatstay cluster is wrong and that isn't a Ritchey serial number. I hope you didn't pay too much.

The component mix says '84 to me. It's rare to see Shimano Deerhead on an '83 mass produced bike. I'd guess $200-250 because of the parts mix - that seatpost is not a cheap item.

I just read the bike's story on mtbr. I initially questioned the year with that fork. Cool story and a unique Ritchey. Love those tires - be careful on the trails with old tires, even NOS. :)
