1983 Cook Bros. Racing Alpine

This bike is part of the MOMBAT collection and is NOT FOR SALE.  Please check out our Vintage Bikes for Sale page to see all of our current offerings.

Haven't been able to find much info on this model.  The Cruiser model was the more common version.  Supposedly, these were made in batches and this is from the third, and final?, batch.  Circa 1983.  From the parts that were on the bikes, that seems like a plausible date.  We filled in some of the missing parts with era-correct ones.  Fork is a 3-piece design using Reynolds 531 tandem fork blades.  The loop stays with plate dropouts is another interesting feature.

If anyone has any further information, let us know.
