Well, I for those of you interested in following this story, today I gathered a tremendous amount of info on Jerome Koshar, the owner of the frame I purchased over the weekend. I spoke to his son Rob, at great length, heard some really wonderful stories that will be shared with you all ata alter date, and have a number of leads to follow still. For now I'll just confirm that Jerome was indeed the owner/rider in the 1983 and 1987 P-B-P and was the oldest finisher of the 1987 event! You can click on the link below to see a pic of him when in the military - make note of his right pant leg cuffed up and the bike bairly visible lying down on the right side of the pic behind the men in the picture - that was his first bike. Rob, the son is fine with me owning the bike -after getting over the shock of it being sold - and has only asked that I return the P-B-P placard as he has all his dad's trophies, ribbons, placards, finish sheets, etc and wants this to reside with the others. I will of course honor that wish and will be getting with him at some point to photograph and pull together everthing. Should make a nice story to read and possibly publish in the IR paper. Thank you all again - especially Bill as that one lead is what has enabled me to determine so much history.

BTW - the son thinks the frame was either a Bill Boston (I don't think so) or his dad's early Carlton (probably). Any Carlton expert's on the list and any web page with lots of detail photos??
