Seattle CL had a listing for a 50s Rickert.
I bid, but then withdrew my offer (2 days before going to see the frameset).

Anybody here buy it?

repainted dark grey, black lugs. 59cm.
No remorse,.better to take existing bikes to a better level of 'Vintage-ness' than to add another frameset.

sorry, I did not save any pics.

That would be a bike I'd like to see. I've owned two Rickerts. A road and a track bike. Both were something special.

Took a while, but found the CL pics? @big chainring -- would this be a deal at $500?
