1985 Ritchey Annapurna 

The Annapurna has to be one of the prettiest frames ever made as well as one of the most time consuming.  Each tube intersection has a faux lug reinforcement that is then fillet brazed.  It is obvious that extra time was spent perfecting the fillets.  The area around the bottom bracket has a very melted or fluid look to it.  This bike is outfitted with pretty standard parts for the custom bikes of the era: Phil hubs and bottom bracket, Shimano drive train and Suntour Roller Cam Brakes.
