Wow! What a cool story! You definitely got that Rodriguez bike for a song. I read somewhere that the ones from the 70s/80s built similarly are collectible items now. They still continue the tradition of building amazing bikes. I happen to own one and their craftsmanship is outstanding.

Angel Rodriguez took an early retirement (in the 90s) and moved with his wife to the Boquete region in Panama where they grow exotic flowers.

Did you ever rebuild the bike? Pictures would be highly appreciated!
