A classic reincarnated.

This bike stumbled into our shop a little while ago for some long overdue lovin. It was once the beloved bike of Mr. John Eustice US Pro Champ 1982. He passed it along to one of the junior racers he was coaching in the late 80's. Paul, the current owner and former pupil of Eustice, had raced the crap out of it and had long since retired it. Paul decided to fixer up as a single speed to ride about town. I happened to run into John at interbike and told him that the bike was in my shop and was being repurposed. Needless to say he was jealous and wanted it back, I guess that's between them now. I love little pieces of bike history like this, thought i'd share it with you tonight.
