Got my Replacement Frame

My replacement frame arrived on Monday. It was shipped from San Francisco via US Postal Service on Friday. I tracked it online that evening and it was still in the Bay Area; it showed up at my door in Charleston, South Carolina Monday afternoon. Pretty fast service I would say for coming clear across the country.

The frame is a 51cm. Fuso that I built around 1985. It has been repainted in a red powder-coat finish. Yesterday I stripped my damaged bike down with the exception of the bottom bracket and crank set. I don’t have the tools at this time to do that myself, so I took both frames over to Charleston Bicycle Company, my LBS on Savannah Hwy. to have them complete the switch.

The frame came with a new Campagnolo Record headset, so there was no need to change that over. I will be finishing the re-build this coming weekend, and I’ll be back on the road. I am ready and looking forward to it immensely. Watch this spot for more pictures later.

Mr. Moulton,

Glad you like the frame. Ride it in good health.

Sincerely,
Ron

I'm glad to see you'll be back on a bike in time for spring and I hope your eye is getting better.

Obviously you produced many, many frames in your career, I'm guessing it must be in the thousands. I was wondering if you ever remember making a specific production frame (as opposed to a custom order) when you see it again years later?

Say, that frame looks familiar. Like the one I powdercoated red and built up a few months ago, and sold to a bike pal a little north of me in California.
You wrote about it in an earlier blog entry in 06, August I think.

wow. I couldn't be happier for you. The frame is back to its roots!!
enjoy and ride safe
