Bill Bastian fabricated alloy frame
Been on the lookout for a while for this hard to find frame
Original anno and decals
Race Inc Centerline forks, Skyway Tuff 1's with snakebelly tires, Suntour VX cranks with DX pedals Cycle Pro seat clamp
Was fortunate enough to have Brian Hayes verify the frame for me as can be read below-
Yep. Definitely a Bastian Rampar. These frames are odd. They are closer to the dimensions of a Race Inc RA7 but with the gussets of an RA8. Kind of a middle frame between the RA8 mini and RA7 pro frame. 79 is correct as we believe that is the only year these were made and decal'd as Rampar. This same frame was also decal'd as Laguna expert frames. Nice find!!
Sweet! good info! thx for posting it!! Love to know the how/why of rare frames! GAry
