MORE PHOTOS OF THIS BIKE ON MY WEBSITE. WHAT MAKES THIS BIKE SPECIAL. An identical Ground Control started my fascination with bicycle restoration two years ago, and Im still riding that bike now.

I enjoyed restoring this beautiful Ground Control, tuning it up, and detailing into showroom conditions. I have disassembled it, replaced questionable parts with new, thoroughly cleaned and tuned everything up; greased bearings, trued wheels, and dialed in shifters/derailleurs/brakes.
