Well, here's is one of those strange coincidences that makes life interesting. In the period of which we speak I was not only a Marin County bike rider but a recording engineer who-wait for it-worked on a couple of NRPS records and knew them socially, particularly John. I remember when he got this bike and riding with him but I don't remember the fancy paint. The base color is what I remember but not the graphics. I remember it as being a single pale green color. John now lives in Mexico-San Migel del Allende?. And perhaps Albert could shed some light on the paint job but I never saw an Eisentraut of that period-and I had a very nice black one-being anything but a single color. But as I have said before, "Records from that period are spotty at best." Phil Brown Taking a stroll down memory lane in San rafael, Calif.
