Hello Everyone- I'm a Newbie here. Just want to say hello. My name is Ed
> Busch and I'm originally from N.J., now residing in Tennessee. Bought my
> first used Bottecchia in 1974. Got my U.S.C.F. license in 1976, Turned Cat 2
> in 1978 and raced cat 2 for the next 10 years including ten trips to The
> Tour of Summerville, lots of wonderful memories and photos to go with it.
> Along with the memories I have quite a collection of bikes from the
> early to mid seventies, including a 1975 custom built Jim Redcay(serial #
> 1445040) which I believe could be one of the top fifty frames Jim Made. Two
> of the other bikes I have are from about the same year. They are a Roberts
> Track Bike(serial # 1988) and a Holland built Presto (serial # 2131). If
> there is anyone out there that can help me identify the years of the Presto
> and the Roberts, and any other info, It would be greatly appreciated.
