Coincidence

At the NAHBS in Sacramento, March 3rd. Left to right, Steve Kesling, myself (Dave Moulton.) Lynn Kesling, and Ronald Lau.

In the 1980s I offered a drop top tube ladies frame; one of them came up for sale on eBay a couple of years ago, and Ronald Lau (Who owns 3 of my frames.) bought it for his wife. The bike is pictured below.

Back in 1983 I built matching "His and Hers" touring frames for Steve and Lynn Kesling. (The bikes are pictured below.)

These drop top tube ladies frames are extremely rare; I only ever built three. So what were the chances that the owners of two of them would walk into the Fuso Booth at NAHBS at the exact same time. The Keslings and Ronald Lau had never met until that moment.

One of those strange coincidences that happen in life from time to time. I have no idea where the third frame is.

Pretty remarkable coincidence, and add to it that YOU were there when they both showed up. Cool story.
