Looks like a Schwinn fork, but I'm just about 100% sure the frame isn't Ritchey. Unless someone had a timber wolf specially built with suntour drop outs & center pull brakes & then chromed.

I agree pretty sweet frame though

Ask the seller to confirm the serial number, see if that jives with Ritchey's convention at the time.

The frame looks like a 1982 McKinley, based on the seat-tube reinforcement with the concentric groove at the top, and the absence of reinforcement rings on the head-tube.

My WAG is some previous owner scored a complete XC Pro gruppo with the roller-cam rear brake and had the frame modified/U-brake bosses added to the chainstays when the frame was refinished.

Seller is super cool. He checked the serial number for me. It's just 2

So I'm guessing it's obviously custom hand built in the USA circa 84 or 85 but builder is a mystery.

Drop outs are campagnolo
