This was built with influence of Ralph's Bicycle style of pure exotica and extreme attention to detail. I have 3 hustler mini frames and they're all completely different...this one looks like the welds are brazed and shows Ralph's road bike influences. The Campagnolo cranks were 'custom fabricated' in the 80's by Ralph and were cut down to 150's. They were retapped to fit 1/2" pedals in order to keep the strength. The numberplate also came from the "Ralph's stash" was used by one of his team racers. I did cut up some original Hustler decals to customize the seatpost and under the brake lever.
