    if I say so myself atmo. PS That's not me in the pic, it's the seller.

    This came in today. It's the 589th RS frame made. I reckon it's from late 1978 to early 1979
    atmo. Pics are straight from the memory card without image tweaks. The Flickr album is here.

    Richard, love the new bike in post #1392. Maybe it's the Campy group and wheels (Neutron's white/red decals accent the frame nicely) and the newer colorway (the seat tube insignia design is bitchin, like it), it all just flows together. That's a sharp looking bike.
    How timely it is that you have in your shop now a frame you made in the seventies. I looked at the new bike and that old frame back and forth (OCD is a bitch) to see
    what differences have occured over these many years. I'm no frame builder so just the obvious things stick out like the older frame's lugs (they look more sculpted), the seemingly barely touching seat stays, older style cable routing.
    To my "don't know crap" untrained eye, the new bike's frame looks beefier, stronger at the drop outs, the lugs aren't as sculpted and I like them better,
    the seat stay attachement is more part of the seat tube now.
    To me, the older frame has a hand wokred elegance to it and that new frame is master class and all business. It looks tough.
    I guess you can't tell I like that bike in #1392 very much, best looking RS for me, it will go into my favorites picture folder and be my desk top background for awhile.
    As for the older frame, I was wondering what you think about when you see a piece if work from the past like this?

    Thanks atmo. I checked my records, and the older frame was made after I returned from my first trip to Italy. It was nearly three weeks there of the Milan Exposition preceded with some entry level industrial espionage by me and pal Len Preheim (now deceased). We went at least two dozen framebuilding places, having introductions for all of them. Note: you simply don't show up unannounced. That's gauche. So, from all the lunches, mini-tutorials, and free advice that came from each brand manager we met, a few had more depth than the others. Time spent at the shops of Losa, Tommasini, and Derosa made the most lasting impression on me. I came up through a different system, and even though I began at a framebuilding production shop, when I started my brand most of what I was doing was self-taught - or at least self-imagined. The trip to Italy, and seeing the way those men and their staffs of worker stood at the bench changed my outlook. When I can home and resumed, I made the conscious decision to no longer craft bicycle frames and veer into making bicycle frames. What was once a creative process (for me) became a job of work, of labor. To make the bicycle beautiful ceased to be the driver (although I'd never strive to make them ugly, or pedestrian), and making them well became the next thing for me. The images of the recent unit show the derivative of the bicycle made in 1979. I couldn't have made either without having made that initial trip to Italy.

    Awesome, thanks for sharing what it was and what changed.
    Like those "Behind The Scenes" music shows, it's so intersting to hear
    how the person or group developed, changed and adapted over the years.
    That new bike is straight up business, I like where you are now.
