here’s a scan of notebook one page one – i found two of these because iirc i started it over when i realized composition books would last longer than spiral bound pads. at some point i must have transcribed all of it over. the notes show the specs of the first-ever RS frames as they were then recorded. number 85 was the first one sold for money. the first 10 were on display at the 1976 international cycle show held that february at the coliseum on columbus circle. frame number 105 (the tenth frame…) was a track frame, shown unpainted so folks could ogle the brazing and filing, was stolen one night while we were there. i dunno/remember who recycle is but it’s the name of the shop that bought the first frame a season or two after i used it racing.
