This Redcay is particularly nice. Jim was an early adopter of investment cast Henry James lugs so only so many use pressed lugs. And the earliest bikes are not as nice as this, as I owned the thirteenth one myself (unluckily stolen). While the paint (probably a repaint) is not perfect, the lug filing and brazing look to be absolutely top rate in my opinion. The Zeus 2000 crown is real cool also.
