Very glad to hear you enjoyed the events, and thank you so much for bringing out this great bike to ride! Clark Francy works very hard to make the course interesting, yet ridable. The intention is to make it fun for a modern bike, yet not totally intimidating for any and all vintage rides.

How about tell us some about this one here? Looks like an interesting amalgamation of parts.
Yes, the Avatar image is an actual picture of me - back when I was younger and handsomer.
