For Sale: 1975 Albert Eisentraut Limited

IMG_8908
I recently acquired this Eisentraut, but sadly it’s just a bit too big for me. As I am not it’s “forever home” I have withheld wrenching, cleaning or polishing it, as folks who collect things of this quality tend to be pretty dang particular on such tasks and I wanted the next owner to have that experience.

I have moved the seat post and stem to ensure that they are not seized, they moved freely. I have not gone into the BB, but from the other bits I think it’s highly unlikely that it is an issue.

I also find it highly unlikely that there are many examples out there in better condition than this. Looks barely ridden.It’s a classic from an American frame building icon.

The price is $1100.

BMX Video Monday

X-Men

These were the dudes whom a very young and easily influenced me saw on MTV sports and made me want to someday ride bikes really fast in traffic.
