Thanks for the feedback, the fork I sourced is a Tange for off a Ritchey framed bike is all I know. I managed to get it for $40 it’s not likely that I’ll find an original brazed fork but as I continue to look this will do nicely. I have fork decals on order from Velocals. That should arrive in a week or two. Next hurdle is the 1” Ritchey Logic threaded headset seems to be a bit of a hens tooth. Nothing easy on this one. I believe I’m close to closing on the purchase a cannondale M2000 with XT and full Ritchey components that would gonon this build. Fingers crossed .

Yeah those pesky 1" threaded Ritchey logic headsets are really tough to find in good shape... But I did check in my cabinet of mysteries.... Found one, also found a 1-1/4" threaded lock ring I've been hunting down for months... Everybody wins!

FB fork and stem are definitely tall orders. I was lucky enough to have both for mine. Even rode/raced it with Joe and had him autograph it. They are terrific riding bikes!

Yes I have visited your site multiple times because once wasn’t enough lol. You have some great steeds that’s for sure. Love your Breezer and hope mine will do justice.

Nice! I'm never really sure if anyone is interested or will even find it. Thrilled to hear you did and enjoyed!

Now with headset fork and stem. I fit up the specialized cranks just to get a feel for the bike. Expect new bottom bracket soon for the Ritchey crankset

Current state far to go but this one’s definitely feels like it’s going to be special
