Not my bike but I just like the idea of a Camel cigarette bike badge.

Thanks for this, 63_dorinte. Brings back pleasant memories. I used to hang around in Ron's shop on Highland Drive and shoot the breeze a bit, ogling the nice frames he made. I'd love to find one. He was a good craftsman.

I feel extremely fortunate to have found two, both in my size (48-50cm) . The other one does not have a head badge, only stickers on the downtube and the stamping on the bottom bracket. That is the nicest riding, most most comfortable road frame I have ever ridden. I am always on the lookout for others, but out of ~500 frames that he made, there probably aren't many more small ones out there.

I've got an old pal in Salt Lake who is always on the lookout for Ron's frames, for himself and me. They rarely ever show up.
He made some beautiful frames.

I have no idea - assumed it had something to do with the conversion to threadless stem. I asked my LBS and they hadn't seen it before. It works fine and it's an interesting eccentricity.

A few more to add to the gumbo:

Wife's Jen Green



Picchio



Sterling (Bilenky)



Aluminum Cinelli (not as cool as the brass)
