Circa 1986 Bob Jackson Novara LoPro

Constantly searching for the next exciting classic build, we located this Bob Jackson Lopro listed by Anchor Bay Bicycles in New Baltimore, Michigan. The longtime owner, John, was kind enough to make the trip to Buffalo, visit Shickluna, and personally deliver the bike.  

These low-profile frames, crafted exclusively for special orders, are a rare find that was a privilege to discover. We outfitted the bike with a final-generation Campagnolo Super Record groupset, Mavic Comete disc wheel, and Cinelli cockpit.
