look at the gusset at the down tube and the seat tube by the BB........also, the top tube is going in a downward direction.

Hey jdub I'm almost there. Should be listing new pics soon. Added a new frame pad NOS Race Inc. Thinking of changing the white tires to blue and the white seat and grips to red whatcha think?

Good score on the pads.  If it were mine I would change it.  It will look hot just blue and red.

Re: 1979 Race Inc. RA-8

Had one of these BITD.  I was way too big for it but built it up to be as light as possible.  Traded it on my first gen GT mountain bike (still have it) because I figured I would crack the frame if I kept riding it.  Nice score!


Please don't let me buy any bikes from you.  I have an addiction.  You wouldn't want to be an enabler, would you?
