Unique Richard Sachs, Campagnolo Equipped Bike





Richard Sachs is selling a unique bike he made in 2003 to celebrate his 30th anniversary of framebuilding. Sachs describes the bike as such:

"Only one iteration was ever made; no orders were accepted. All period correct parts were used to replicate how the biz and art were in the early 70s. All components were NOS (ed note: New Old Stock) and removed from original cartons for the assembly. All of the frame pieces are from the late 60s and early 70s. Mix of Columbus and Reynolds tubing, Campagnolo 1010A dropouts, Nervex Ref. 32 lugs, George Fisher fork crown and bb shell. Minimum braze-ons as was correct for the era. Includes (NOS) 1972 Campagnolo Nuovo Record group, Cinelli 1A stem, old logo 'bars and saddle, Martano rims, Regina Oro 5 speed freewheel and chain, and Alfredo Binda Extra toe straps."

Size: 58cm C-T seat tube, 56cm C-C top tube

Price: $10,000
