The Saluki is my 2d RBW product.

I heard about it on the owners list and contacted its prior guardian. We agreed on terms, and here it is. It came a week ago, and I enjoyed putting it together. I've made just a few changes so far, and really enjoy its super smooth feel on the road. The bike is a 2005 in the stock Sage Green, and was built by Toyo.
