I would advise you to check the CR list archives, for which a link exists on the CR web page. You should find quite a few previous discussions on Dave Tesch which would contain very good info. Another possible source of info might be Mike Appel, who was an early framebuilder at Trek and still lives near Waterloo, Wisconsin (Mike might even work for Trek again, as it seems as I heard a rumor to this effect). I'm not quite sure how to contact Mike, but the Cronometro shop in Madison would know for sure. Good luck and take care.

I am particularly interested in learning whether there is anyway to identify the frames that he built for Trek in the early 1980s (if that's possible). I would also like to know if anybody is aware of when Mr. Tesch took over building frames bearing John Howard's name from David Moulton (I am looking at buying a Moulton-made John Howard frame to add to my collection; I already have a Tesch-made John Howard). Lastly, I think that Tesch did some work for Masi and other builders, and would like to know who else he may have built framesets for before he got out of the bike business. Thanks in advance for any information that you all are able to provide me.
