Well show us the pictures of it now sitting on your mantle!
I trust you made an offer to buy it on principal?gotdirt said:so i'm in a LBS, when the guy behind the counter notices my bontrager and says, "hey, you might want to see this"... proceeds to take me to the back of the shop and pulls down a frame from the ceiling-- a never ridden, in fact, never finished, bontrager mountain frame. :thumbsup: raw steel. you could see the file marks along the joints. some way cool gusseting and absolutely flawless welds. he thinks it pre-dates the race frames, though besides the gusseting it looked identical (to my untrained eye anyway).
he seemed to sidestep the question about how it was acquired, only saying it came from keith's garage.
anyway, kinda cool to see. thought you folks might appreciate it.
Pretty sure I know which shop this is. If I recall its got a rust issue or something to that effect... Neat to look at though.Rumpfy said:I trust you made an offer to buy it on principal?
