Gary, the owner had it built in 1981. Gary worked at a number of bike sh ops here in San Diego during that period. He said the bike is very stabl e with a light load, since it is a bike for just that purpose. I'll see if Rob has anything to add. I'll try to stop by JB's this afternoon and see if Rob is there. If not, I'll call him at home and visit him there. It's all within 2 miles of my house.

It would be great to hear what Rob has to say about the frame (year

made, among other things) if you have a chance to speak with him.

Many thanks for taking time out of your busy day to buy this for me. I

really appreciate it!

Kind Regards,
