1984 Ritchey 14K

Take one fillet brazed Ritchey frame and fork, sent it to Columbine for a Wild Irish Rose paint job with gold leaf decals, add all black anodized parts and then top it off with all gold plated hardware and this is what you get!!  I am guessing that the bike is from the 1984/5 era based on the build kit.  You have to admire the commitment that it would have taken to build this bike.  Every nut, bolt, spacer, cir-clip, nipple and spring has been gold plated.  Even the painted-to-match pump has a gold plated Campagnolo head.
