1977 Race Inc. RA-7
Cycle Pro Foiler / FMF This is one that many will debate, so I will just give my opinion. You know what they say about opinions.
This is one frame that many will question and debate, so I will only give my opinion. This rare year with the oval / teardrop top tube could be either a RACE INC., Cycle Pro Foiler, or a FMF (all frames of which I own). They were all made at the same place anyway, welded by Bill Bastain right? Anyway the only difference between the frames are serial numbers (Which the FMF and Foilers do not have) and the triangle above the brake bridge is longer. The RACE INC. also would have diamond dropouts, which as you notice mine does NOT have. However this frame has a RACE INC. serial number, and the stickers that some idiot peeled off (that would be me) were the original stickers. There was fading around them so bad it is clear as day. So in my opinion it is a RACE INC, that is why I put the RACE INC. stickers back on her, just like she had when I got her. The forks are TANGE.
