TS Isaac was a custom frame builder in the '70s, from somewhere in Colorado I believe. The PARTS (components) used on this bike all Campagnolo. As for value? hellifiknow!

You got a heck of a deal for $35; btw, that is a highly unusual way to mount a pump. That is also one big bike; does it fit you? Some others will chime in with a price but it is worth much more than you paid for it. As a point of reference, I paid $200 for a custom racing bike with full campy gear and I thought I got a very good deal on the bike. By the way, the size of the bike will make it somewhat harder to sell.

For value, I would estimate approximately "a lot." No, but looking at how anything with Campagnolos go (and don't go) on eBay, it could be anywhere between $200 and $1200. Figure you need to find the right buyer, you know. If you're looking to sell it, you may be better off with a Buy It Now at an outrageous price with a best offer option than an auction. There aren't many people looking for things like this.

T.S. Isaac = Tim Isaac.

You've got an interesting classic from a talented builder. After building custom frames in Colorado, Tim Isaac started Match Cycles in Woodinville, WA, which landed a contract to build the 1998-2000 Reynolds 853 lugged steel Schwinn Paramounts (Ben Serotta built the Ti version). The talent Tim put together at Match included Curt Goodrich, Kirk Pacenti, Steve Hampsten, and Mark Bulgier among others.

Here's a 1999 Interview with Tim Isaac from Rivendell Reader.

Thanks for this link and info.

A TS Isaac would be quite a catch.

I would have a tough time passing a nice example by.

@op Great find.

Yeah, it looks humongous, at least 64cm or something(?). And on that topic, if/when trying to sell it, oversize frames almost always bring in less money.

Fantastic custom bike! Super great catch! 35 bucks would have only bought you the clamp-on shifters on that bike in most places You pretty much won the lotto with that bike.....But I'm most glad its not my size or I'd be so much more envious.......
Congratulations and good luck on the clean-up/resto on it and hope you get it back on the road soon!

Why make the goose neck so long on this frame. Is that it is a Columbus tube frame ?

While generally very small and very large frames sell for less than frames in the 54cm - 61cm range because the market is much smaller, occasionally a 4' 9" or 6' 7" rider comes along who has been searching for a frame that will fit and is willing to pay a premium for it because outsized frames are so rare.

Stem height and extension length are set up for the rider's preferred riding position. That stem doesn't look particularly long to me. Is there a tubing sticker/decal on the frame?
