I just spoke with Tom Kellog and he said he wasn;t involved in any of the 510s. He's going to look into the email cited by the seller and try and figure out what's going on. I didn't have the email address handy. Fortunately, we have 7 days to address/figure this out.

Still every bit as good if it's a Redcay build. Whatever it is, it's been expertly crafted. But, yeah, forgery is not exactly a cool thing....

despite what all that the Sisters at Our Lady of Perpetual Sorrows alwasy told me this may be a dumb question. did Tom Kellog in fact build bikes for Ross? were they contract top shelf bikes? did he work in some fancy "Pro" shop at Ross or was he just another brazer on the assembly line?

BTW I have 14 letters just like that from Mr Graves at Bianchi USA

Yes, he did work there. Now has his own shop in a beautifully renovated 100+ year old barn. If you are venturing out to Trexlertown in the fall, we should all try to get together and do a tour. I grew up in the area. Always looking for an excuse to visit.

I am NOT accusing anyone of forgery. It's probably a misunderstanding and I'd wager dollars to donuts it will get cleared up. I'm calling back tomorrow and should know more.

I called and asked TK what 510 meant...he said it was an internal frame designation, and that the last one he worked on was 508. He might not have remembered, he might have given me...or him...bad info...and it will likely get cleaned up. I am NOT accusing the seller of any wrong doing and he was quite nice and forthright in emails, as well as passionate about bikes.

Let's not jump to conclusions...I'm just flagging a potential issue, and if TK says it's not his, I'll inform the seller. I am not ready to do that yet but I have no doubt he'll take appropriate action.

this has been up for hours and no one has posted it ? I know it's pricey but I think it's ballpark.

Maybe you're all trying to buy it:

OK...spoke with Tom...

This was one of the last bikes he made at Ross, and he DID make it. Apparently he forgot the exact time line, but he was confident in the email sent above and it is genuine. The 510 was a Japanese version road bike as opposed to Record. It had a Japanese head crown lug, it came equipped with DUra Ace/Crane and had the Shimano drop outs.
