This is a complete re-do of the Race Tech bike I originally found at a local yard sale back in 2009.  I have included a picture of the bike as it used to be to show the difference. The frame, fork, headset and grips are the same....everything else is different.

Everything is original finish with no reproduction.

Sometimes you have to just swap things around. Changes give it a different attitude compared to before.

I’m tripping out on the head tube.  I’m not quite sure what’s going on there.  Can you post a close up picture?  Killer bike...
