Bruce Gordon?

This is not so much an appraisal question, but a fact finding mission. I've had this for a while but can't find any info

on it. Was told by the previous owner that its a BG, but have not seen any photos of TIG welded frames by him.

There are no identifying marks other than the chicken logo and an Ibis chainstay protector. Serial # doesn't match

up with his lugged frames either. Any thoughts?

It is recent , the chicken has its reference to his current shop location , in Petaluma California.

nothing wrong with TIG welded joints..

He, (also around 70) is ready to retire , want to buy his business?

I guess my next question would be about value. Not being one of his recognizable
lugged frames and no downtube decals, I'm estimating $150? Seem reasonable?

Seems great for a buyer. For the seller, not so much.
