A little bit of history: Update


At the end of last February, I wrote “A little bit of history sold on eBay.”

A custom touring frame that I built in 1982 came under the virtual hammer. The bike had previously featured in a Bicycling magazine road test.

The bike’s new owner, Ron who lives in the Bay Area, recently sent me pictures. He wrote:

“I took the bike to Terry Shaw, who took the bike apart, cleaned it, and put it back together using the parts from my Fuso.

Currently it is set up for commuting to downtown San Francisco. Fat tires are for all the bad roads in SF and fenders are for all the fog in the morning. When winter comes again, the rack will come off and become the training bike when it is wet.

This bike is great, top tube is 1.5cm longer than my Fuso so I raised the handlebar and set it up for less aggressive riding position, my Fuso is a 53cm, this frame is a 55cm.”


As I thought it would, the original paint on the frame cleaned up nicely; it was simply covered in dirt from years of neglect.

It does my heart good to know that another of my bikes, has found a good home, and is being ridden. Which, after all is what this bike was built for.

Beautifully done Mr. Shaw. Looks brand spanking new.
