I love the black over the chrome. Never thought those words would come out on my computer keys.

Re: 1980 Race Inc. RM-1

Only aware of RM-2's

Have seen one RM-1 sold here two years ago that supposedly had a longer top tube.

Your serial number looks just like mine and that 3 is part of the total serial number. I am going home in two weeks and can measure my top tube and show you my serial number to compare. I think you have a RM-2.

No. It's an RM2 as far as I know.

In Race Inc history Serials numbers will start with RM or RA. RM means its Chromoly, RA means its aluminum.

The same was true with their Handlebars, forks and seat posts. They only had Chromo (RM) forks of course, but the bars and seat posts were both made in aluminum or Chromo, and the part numbers started with either RM or RA accordingly

Your serial means its a Race Inc Chromo frame #34007, and the Race Inc chrome frames were called RM-2's.

Some other models were RA-7, RA-8, RA-9 (a mini), RA-10, RA-24 (their cruiser), check my bikes for a fine example of one of those.
