Thanks Fillet-Brazed. I found it on Ebay almost 7 years ago. I was bidding along with two other people. I was the high bidder, but I didn't meet reserve. I contacted the seller, an antiques dealer in Vermont who was selling it for a friend, and asked her what her selling price was. Well, after some negotiating, we settled on a price. I know I overpaid back then, but after talking to Sheldon Brown, I grabbed it. I didn't know a lot about vintage MTBs at that time, and he advised me the bike would be valuable someday in the near future. A few year later, I spoke to the curator of the MTB Hall of Fame who told me it was an Annapurna. I knew the bike was rare, but I didn't know how rare until he told me.
This bike has a NORBA sticker on the downtube, and I suspect it was raced at one time. Is there any way I could possibly find out who originally owned the bike and raced it? The person who sold the bike to me through the antiques dealer was the second owner, and he had purchased it at a swap meet. (I never actually talked to the seller, since I dealt with the dealer) I know it's a long shot.
Lastly, come to think of it, I would probably die trying to save all of my bikes too.
