Custom Painted 18.5″ Despatch in Mint Condition
My mother purchased this bike in 1987 from the S.L. Lewis Bike Company in Reynoldsburg, Ohio. She loved black bikes and had this Despatch painted to suit her tastes. The painting was done at the Terry factory in East Rochester, NY by Brian Moredock of Paintworks.
The cro-moly Tange 1 steel frame (made in Japan) has an 18 1/2″ seat tube. The standover height is 28.7″.
The bike is in beautiful shape. It’s seen very few miles on the road, but was loved! With a little TLC and a tune up, it will be ready to enjoy the road again. The SunTour Cyclone 7000 components are visible on the photos. Toeclips and straps are included. A spec sheet on the bike is shown below the photos.
The bike is located in Salem, MA.
