The guy selling that goes by 'ride2surf 'over on MTBR VRC (Vintage Retro Classic). He posted that bike as something he had recently picked up less than a year ago.. as he often does. Hit's all the swap meets in Cali? Anyways, nice bike. Fwiw, there's a Braxton frame for sale at Red Barn bikes in the Bitterroot Valley south of Missoula.. 350-ish range if I recall. Derek, would still love to see that fixed wheel Braxton. Also, Adventure Cycling is picking up Braxtons at a brisk pace, and nice ones at that including Gary McFadden's personal Braxton ATB, which at quick glance had some very custom features. I've been in touch with the CR site owner about beefing up Sam's page a bit. There are a number of really nice examples here in Missoula.. the nicest Braxton road machine I have seen is at Missoula Bicycle Works.. made when the customer was doing the Ironman... full SR, and mint. Mark Kleffner who also worked at Shuberts by Hanson's had plenty of stories about Sam.. evidently a real bearcat to deal with.
