Here is my 1979 Robinson:
I have a 1978 frame and fork as well, which is in the build queue. The top tube has a lot of pitting from rust, so it will have to be re-painted. The forks are really nice, but bent forward a couple degrees. I am looking for someone who can bend them back without harming the finish.
I can connnect you with a sticker source if you still need one.

One detail that is worth noting is the brake set up.
That is more than likely a stock set up. The pro frames (Bob Woods,Scott Clark) of that era 79-80 had that undermount centerpull brake set up as stock.
If the brake set up was done by the former owner (and that is also possible) I consider it what any self respecting Robinson fan/rider would have done to mimic his favorite pro.
Chuck Robinson was a fan of quality something he learned prior at Webco and DG.

66alfa_gtv, You don't see alot of round hole Robinsons, I seen your Red one(beautiful bike)a while back and was on the hunt for one. Is red the original color?
Send me your contact info on the decals, thanks
Joe, #008, wow, I did'nt know that. That is super cool.
Curt, the center pull brakes were used by Ted and his brother, The hole was there, so it was a no brainer.

My '79 was originally red (frame + forks). There was no way to save it due to rust and pealing, but there was enough paint to get an accurate match.
I say paint, but I believe these were powder coated originally. This frame never had a serial number. It appears my '78 doesn't have a # either.
