Model General Information
Alpine Cycles was the trademark for the house brand frames sold by Georgetown Cycle Sports (GCS). They were located in the Washington D.C. area during the 1970's and 80's. They used the distinctive red and white Swiss cross for their logo with ALPINE CYCLES at the top and WASHINGTON D.C. at the bottom. Many of the early Alpine frames from the mid 70's were made by a variety of British builders. Some frames were built locally in the D.C. area by people affiliated with GCS. In the late 70's American frame builders like Albert Eisentraut also supplied GSC with private labeled Alpine Cycles frames. During the same period GSC sold another brand, C.I.D. which stood for Cycle Import and Design.

This frame was made in the UK perhaps by Tom Board a builder who made a lot of private label frames. It's made of light gage Reynolds 531 tubing with Nervex Professional lugs. The dropouts are the old Campagnolo 1060 stamped steel vertical models to accommodate the short chainstays.
