1983 RRS Racing

Totally Killer RRS 20" equipped with some of my favorite parts

I absolutely love this bike.  I saw the frame set here on the Museum, right about the time I first joined the site.  It had already changed hands by the time I committed to trying to buy it.  Luckily it showed back up on eBay, and now it's mine.  Not 100% certain on the year, but I've been led to believe from a couple of sources it's from 1983.  This one came with gussets at the head tube, and a 2 piece eccentric BB.  I haven't seen any other RRS frames with the gussets, but truth is, I haven't seen all that many 20" RRS frames at all.  The 2 piece eccentric BB is pretty cool, as it allows you to run a one piece crank.  Most don't care for the one piece cranks, but I love the simplicity, and strength.  The parts are a mish-mosh of parts I picked up from friends, and members of the Museum.  It took a while to find what I wanted, and even longer to finally put it together.  But here it is, finally done.
Breakdown:
* 20” RRS Frame
* RRS Forks
* Cook Slant Stem
* Powerlite 1st Gen Pro Bars
* NOS Tange Fluted Chromo Seat Post
* NOS Dia Compe 2 Piece Seat Clamp
* Takagi One Piece Cr-Mo Cranks in Black
* Phil 110 BCD Spider
* Phil Hubs
* Pete’s Chainring
* Hadley BB mounted to 2 piece RRS Eccentric BB Shell
* Cinelli Unicanitor Seat
* NOS KKT Magnesium Pedals
* Ukai 7c Rims 
* NOS IRC Knobby Tires fat/skinny combo
* Dia Compe Tech 3 Lever
* NOS Dia Compe 960 Cantilever Brakes
* White Industries Freewheel
* Tange 320 Headeset w/Tange Headlock
* NOS Oakley 1 Grips

That turned out awesome!  I really like the stem and pedals on the RRS.  Sweet!

Thanks!  Appreciate the compliment  smile

It’s been parted out since, and the frameset will probably go up for sale here soon.  But it was a fun build for sure.  Very unique bike.

Re: 1983 RRS Racing

Your RRS is so SICK, that it inspired me to build my GT 26 like your bike.

Re: 1983 RRS Racing

This is by far the badest RRS I have ever seen. You would have lots more fav if the fav button worked. I tried to click on it several time during my build and it still is not on my fav. I saw this bike a few years ago. So when I ran across mine I had to buy it. I just finished check it out I posted it. Not as loaded as yours but pretty cool.
