    Default PSA: $10,000 Richard Sachs

    RICHARD SACHS SERIAL #1, 1975 - RoadBikeREVIEW.Com

    No relation at all. He says serial #1. Maybe Richard can share some info on this one. Interesting story anyway.

    That's cool! Now, someone here really needs this bike. I mean, this is THE Sachs to own if there ever was one...

    The real #1 is in Rhode Island. As in the first bike e-Richie ever built.

    A very good pal owns it.

    I know what you're saying....but I would much rather have a current production, top-of-the-game, latest technology RS. By far.

    Sign up for Ballers and ride with Richard. Stylish. And the hardest 86 miles you'll ever ride.

    It's my observation that he even rides a Sachs bicycle. I heard he's not taking orders except under special circumstances so I really wonder where he bought his.

    Nothing says "yesterday" like something that used to say "tomorrow."

    Those socks are, like, today.

    Hi, Skip Lile here. I wanted to clarify my posting on the Road Bike Review Classified ad and validate the claim of serial #1, 1975. To do this, I have copied a quote directly from this forum that was made by Richard Sachs 12-31-2010 (Post #281).

    the first frame with RS branding was 15, then it was 25, and the 100th was 1005. since i started the business in 1975 the plan was to sub the last number strike to coincide with the year. oops, i forgot to switch in 1976 and before i knew it, years passed. i'd say the build order all makes some sense until the 1,200th RS frame or so in the mid 80s decade. that would read as 12005. i got to a point in time when the record archiving bored me beyond words. by the 1990s a whole mess of team frames, relabeled frames, and barters were done with no record keeping at all. it was in that period that i went from a true sequential numbering system to zip codes, or military dog tags, or even the town i was shipping to. none of it will ever make any sense unless one looks at the composition books i keep. in them, each frame (the ones that are marked, that is) has a line, the design specs, and the cryptic code that appears on the shell as well as on the fork column atmo. scanning through the books and seeing the entry order is the only way to ascertain when a frame was built. as noted in one of the frame board threads about serial numbers, i lost interest in convention a long while back. heck, i never had an interest in it, but at one time i guess having a true record keeping process seemed like a good idea.

    So, as stated in my ad on Road Review Classifieds. This is serial #1, 1975 or as Richard stated serial #15. This was the first frame built under the RS brand. Richard was kind enough to let me keep a copy of the photo of him with the bike. I will gladly pass this along to the new owner. And, those are great socks!
    Any questions, please feel free to contact me.
    Thanks for your time.
