Georgena Terry - ??$$ - San Diego, CA
https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/bik/7543665113.html
Seller has a few other bikes for sale - RB-1, Nishiki Prestige, etc. I get the impression they are looking for big bucks? nothing seems to be clean, let alone maintained, might be a fool's errand? but . . ."if you are looking for one of these?"

from ad:"Georgena Terry Precision hand built vintage road bike. Approximately 150 made between 1986-88. Picked this up for my wife from another husband / wife cyclist couple in Ventura about 15 years ago. Bike is still in pristine shape, with all original components. Frame is a 54. Never seen a color like it. If interested, please send a reasonable offer. Otherwise, the bike will go on ebay like all the rest.

Here's an excerpt from an email from Georgena Terry herself:

Hi Brian,

Yep -- this is a Precision. Hand built in East Rochester, NY in 1986. It was built by me (the fork), Rob Stowe and Dale DuRoss (both used to build for Serotta until I lured them away). Hard to tell if the lugs are Henry James or an imported investment cast lug. We were bouncing back and forth at that time. The tubing is Tange #2 cromoly.
You have a collector's item there -- this steel frame will last for a long, long time with care and the ride will always be sweet, as befits a hand built frame. We probably built about 150 Precisions between 1986 and 1988.
If you wanted to, you could update the components to the current crop. I think the rear end is probably 126mm, so that would need to be spread to 130mm and realigned -- a cinch in the hands of a good shop.
Take care of it and ride it for miles -- bikes are meant to be ridden. I'm glad this one is still on the road.

Best,

Georgena"

Thatís a great letter from Terry but it now puts the price out of reach for most people interested in it. It looks big for a 57 too.

I wonder if they still have the bag? That rack is probably worth half the price of the bike to someone whoís missing one. Canít remember who made that style though

And being a 700/700, it's not as "Terry-esque" as the typical 700/650 or 700/24 Terry. Short top-tube, however.

And a cool old Dodge van it's leaning on.

I am always amazed! That said, if good pics and size/details were provided it would probably be listed for $500! I also have to regularly remind my self how clueless most people are about the basics of a bike (I often include myself on that list).

Is this an MB5? what size? do you have anymore pictures?

01:32 PM Oct 09
Not sure. Where would it say the size?

01:54 PM Oct 09
MB-5 yes. I can take more.

07:40 PM Oct 09
Or what should I measure?

Kirtland Tour bag would fit that, the bag probably deteriorated completely here leaving only the bones.

Srsly? You mean the hanger for the handlebar bag? I probably have a couple buried in my basement somewhere, probably CyclePros or possibly Cannondale. Had no idea they were worth anything.

It's a pic of the fork because this is the ad is just for the fork. Here's the title:

Vintage 90s RST 381 26R Mountain Bike Suspension Fork 1-1/8" Threadless

Description

Off 90s Bridgestone. In great shape.

Thanks Clang
I don't recall the "Off 90s Bridgestone. In great shape" being in the original ad, but maybe I just missed it, maybe it was added to clarify. Makes a lot more sense though. I think my brain also read the title as "Vintage 90s RST 381 26R w/ Mountain Bike Suspension Fork 1-1/8" Threadless."

Sorta-grail bike for me, '90-ish, alas it's pick up only, looks like someone's gonna steal it. Hideous "Navigators" decals, nice Ritchey seatpost, wheelset is a bit garish but at least they're a sane spoke count.
