1972 RIH track. *sold*

Bought this RIH trackframe through a friend in Russia. Most probally this frame was used by the national Russian womans trackteam. Original colour should be white. 52cc 53,5ct 53tt . . RIH Sport Amsterdam was founded in 1921 by brothers Willem (Wim) and Joop Bustraan on the Westerstraat in the heart of the Jordaan, a working class neighborhood in the center of Amsterdam. Since it was the first Dutch frame builder, who could build lightweight frames, RIH Sport Amsterdam has always specialized in building high-performance race bikes, tailored to meet the exact needs of each individual cyclist. In 1928, Willem Bustraan Jr joined the business with his father and uncle and took over the shop in 1948. He then teamed up with Wim van der Kaaij who had learned the craft from an early as an apprentice in the shop. . Van der Kaaij took over the shop in 1973 and made bikes in the same location until 2007. He in his turn was able to share his vision and craftsmanship with us before his passing in 2014. May he rest in peace. . Back in the early 70's Mr Van der Kaaij also made about 30 frames for the Russian national trackteam woman and male.
