For sale: a Robert Stowe HAND-BUILT road bike frame.
Stowe was a frame builder from the Rochester, NY area. As far as I can tell, he primarily built lugged steel, time trial and road bicycles. He and another builder worked under the name Phase 3 in the late 80's. Make no mistake, this is a work of art. The bottom bracket, seat, and head lugs are perfectly brazed, along with some beautiful fillet brazing done on the fork crown.
There are several cosmetic blemishes where the bright yellow paint has chipped but there are NO SIGNS OF RUSTING ON THE THREADS OR ANYWHERE ON THIS BIKE. This bike was properly stored indoors and hardly ridden in the last two years.
Only available as a frame and fork. Serious inquiries only!
Size: 56cm c-c
