This may be a Strada Immaculata. These were the budget price stock sized frames Richie was selling in the late 80s. Not positive since I have lost the pixs of some similar rigs. These are rare since most people still opted for the Signature Series. These sold for +/- $1200 new. Basically the same hand making the frame just not the details associated with a Signature.

I'd be curious what about it makes you question the seller's description of the bike as an '84 (attributed to the builder.) Can't say for sure from the graphics, it's repainted. The milling and certainly investment cast bits like the brake brdge are certainly 80's-something...but I'd "really" like to hear what makes this (or doesn't I suppose) an '84? Richie-o-philes?

'76 Sachs, no engraving, no milling no fancy solid brake bridge, no disappointments in the 27 years I've had it!
