Tesch 101

I spied this frame thru the window of a closed on Sunday shop.It was forgotten and built by an unknown, to most people. I knew better than to pass on the opportunity to own such a rare frameset built by a unique personality during the HeyDay of Californian frame building.I'm told this is 1 of maybe 500 ever built.Details are sketchy as how it arrived to my local area in such pristine condition Please enjoy the road tests and interviews included within the photos.With out a doubt the fastest handling and stiffest sprinting bicycle I ever care to own!

Sorry but I have yet to see one. Maybe the Trexlertown Velodrome sale tomorrow will bring one in to view. You never know what will turn up there.

It's actually fun to ride with folks that have become so Brand Oriented. Most people have never seen one of Tesch's works. Nothing today scooched out of a mold will leave a memory like a fine steel frame. I recently rode with some young guys and one of them asked me what was the purpose of the double top tube. Oh Man !

The pictured wheels are over the top for me, but with a more period correct box rims and skinwall tires this must be a beauty.
