1978 Race Inc. RA-7

1978 Race Inc with rare "Airfoil" top tube and diamond drop outs

Bought this frame on eBay about a year ago. When it arrived it wasn't like any Race Inc. I had seen before. I reached out to Oaktown Massive for some help and decided this bike is one of Bill Bastian's early rule breakers. If you haven't already, check out Oaktown's history lesson on Race Inc. It is an epoxy coated Race Inc with short seat stay and diamond dropouts. The decals are OG. There is no weld underneath the bottom bracket and no serial number.

Would love to own a OG blue or red CyclePro Spoiler.
