Ritchey lays this to rest in an interview somewhere online. On the tig bikes, he did everything BUT tig weld the main tubes. He would not divulge who tigged, but said they were very good and local to him. He even tacked them up. He did the brazes, aligning, any finishing work, and then painted. He never outsourced frames in the 80's, and until I don't know when, possibly some of the "breakaway" may be different.
