Customer's bike- 1979 Richard Sachs 'Touring' bike

A good customer of ours brought this gem by the other day. It is a not like the usual red Richard Sachs custom bikes, but a touring model. Not a true touring bike with cantilever brakes and lowrider mounts, but close enough. It has dropout eyelets, longer stays that comfortably accept 700x32cm tires and the rear Eclipse rack is mounted to the seatstays. The bike is also an early Sachs, somewhere in the low 400s, as an independent frame builder, making it a rare find. Good score Aaron!

Mostly Campagnolo Nuovo Record components except for the Avocet headset and seat post. Quite unique.

I should have left the silver cage Campy pedals in for the photos!
