    Since Retro Forum is non-existant, may I post a RICKERT?

    Hoping for an approx year. I have been told 1959, and a repaint 25 years ago renders the BB markings indistinct. Further, is there a serial number data base?

    Distinctive = derailleur routing rollers at BB, pointed seatstay caps (may help with year ID), no headbadge holes.

    edit: sorry, links, no pics? i need help.

    Thanks, yeah there's a lot of searching to be done in a language I do not speak. If I want more details, maybe I've created a reason to visit Dortmund Germany.

    The build on this frameset will not be 100% true to a 1959 bike, but I have some 60's components. Huret (Svelto rd) derailleurs and shifters, Universal brakes, Galli levers, Ambrosio stem, Thun crankset, tubulars.
