bicycle type: road
frame size: 54 cm
wheel size: 700C
bicycle frame material: steel
condition: good
make / manufacturer: Melton
This bike was handmade at the Raleigh/Huffy Tech Center in Dayton, Ohio by the group who helped make and design bikes for the 1984 and 1988 US Olympic team, the 7-11 racing team, and riders like Greg LeMond: Mike Melton, Joe Skriven, and Steve Bishop. All legendary bike builders in their own right. Confirmed by Joe Scriven.

Again. This bike was hand made by the guy who made bikes for Greg LeMond when he was winning medals.

This is a one of a kind bike. Pefect for a collector of someone who wants something unique.

All steel frame – very light.
Campagnolo dropouts front and rear
Cinelli lugs on head and seat
Cinelli Fork Crown “full sloping” style
Bottom bracket shell made in Japan by Takahashi press.
Mike Melton style seat stay caps
Underside of the Brake Bridge has the Raleigh “R” logo
Campagnolo seat post

Bike was painted by Joe Skrivan and he also made the decals.
7-11 stickers are fairly new.

Bike is ridable. Could use brake work, new tires, tune up.

Thanks for considering
