Sachs is a custom bike maker who's been around since about the mid-70s. He's still very much in business, but he doesn't do tourers anymore...just road and cyclocross. The wait list for his bikes is at 7 years...and he's no longer adding road bikes to the waitlist. He'll make an exception for existing customers, clergy/military and teachers. The neat thing about that bike is Mr. Sachs was never known for touring bikes and made VERY few of them. I think he estimated less than 50. His current production is about 60-70 frames a year. It was a little higher in the early days when this one was made....around 80-90/yr.

I don't remember the exact figures, but I think his current frames are at just under $4,000.
