FS: Tom Kellogg Ross Signature Touring Bike

SOLD


1981 Tom Kellogg hand built Ross Signature Touring frame bike. 23" c-t, ~57cm c-c top tube. Full Reynolds 531 tubing. Tom Kellogg and Jeff Duser at Spectrum Cycles checked out the frame, adjusted the fork, and also verified this is a Kellogg built bike.
When I built this up, I tried to be relatively true to the oe specs on many items found in the 1982 Ross catalog. Of course I added some components based on personal preference or what I had on hand. Many items were NOS when I installed them, and have very low miles now (under 200). The used parts were (and still are) in very nice condition, as I tried to find the nicest ones I could.
Specs of what are on the bike now are listed below.
A few items of note:
-No pedals are included. The genuine Shimano DynaDrive -to- 9/16"x20 adapters are included, so there will be no issues installing "normal" pedals.
-The chain pictured is not included. I was experimenting with different freewheel gearing ranges and varying chain length. Included is a new 116 link Sram PC830 chain with quick-link (bulk purchased from local bike shop).
-While not pictured, I will include an NOS blue Silca Impero frame pump that I had mounted on the frame, but never used to inflate anything.

Other than the above mentioned things, bike is being sold as shown.
Lots of pics here: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmWXS5oF
Let me know if you have any specific questions, or would like pics of anything in more detail.

I am offering it a couple different ways:
1) Bike as shown, with items listed below, $700 plus half of whatever the shipping costs are (I cover the other half).
I am willing to negotiate on price if certain components do not appeal to you and I remove them prior to sale.
OR
2) Frame / Fork / Headset. $350 plus actual shipping.

Shipping only to the lower 48 USA states.
Paypal or USPS money order.

Given how nice my Signature 294S production frame rides, I am guessing this will be a dream for the lucky buyer. Too big to tempt me. GLWS.
