Get pumped for the Bikecitement! Annual Fundraising Dinner presented by Washington Bike Law! It’s coming up on Sunday, March 25th, 2018.

Here are just some of the fabulous prizes that will be up for auction at Bikecitement! All of the proceeds benefit Bike Works’ youth & adults programs and environmental stewardship efforts. Start planning your next vacation or your next bicycle and raise that paddle high!


Fabulous Fuso Road Bike

This fabulous Fuso was hand-made by renowned bike builder Dave Moulton as one of a limited series of frames. A very high-end build for its era, it features Campagnolo Super Record derailleurs, Simplex retrofriction shift levers (highly regarded by friction shift lovers!), and classic wheels that are all in excellent condition.

Dave Moulton started building frames in England before immigrating to the US in 1979 to serve customers here, including the 1980 US Olympic Team. He has expressed great delight at the restoration of this bike thanks to two outstanding Bike Works volunteers! The winner will get the full restoration story of this bike including how to become part of the Fuso community.

Value: $1,900

Restrictions: No returns or exchanges. This is a 53cm frame and will fit a rider from 5’6″-5’7”.
