1982 Race Inc. RA-7

Gold Beauty

This is my 2017 Calendar build off race entry. I purchased the bike from the original owner who bought it in 1984 from a bike shop called Ream's Cycle. From the shape it was in when I bought it from him, I'd guess that it had been in a dry basement or shed from the time he stopped riding it. I tried to keep my build in the spirit of the original bike and not go crazy on it. Almost all the parts on the bike are the original ones, either cleaned or restored or both. The only parts I replaced are the seat (a thrashed Viscount Aero), brakes and chain, put on new grips and tires and re-laced the wheels. All decals are the originals, the drive side chainstay decal is on the bars and even what's left of the Race Inc seat post decal is still there. The last pic is what it looked like the day I brought it home.
