This bike started life as a Specialized Expedition sometime in the early 1980's.

What was left of it was rescued from a garage sale in 1995 and restored with some fun and imagination. The result - the "Hubbell Specialissima" - is a blend of Italian, American, British, French and Japanese influences. And yeah, it's a really nice touring bike too!
