I've mentioned this Turin-branded Eisentraut Limited bike elsewhere on the forum before (s/n 75T005, currently built up using parts from the bin), but finally took it out for a quick shakedown run this morning. I think it's a keeper. I plan to switch to a Cyclone GT rear derailleur and a bit wider range freewheel. I'm still mulling over the handlebar. Might also switch to tubular tires.

Edit: I just realized this frame was built while Bruce Gordon was in Albert Eisentraut's shop. Maybe I should refer to it as "an early Bruce Gordon."
