The Gold Rush Replica (GRR) has been hailed as one of the world's fastest and most indisputably enjoyable production bicycles since its introduction. Fast Freddy Markham rode a Gold Rush straight into the record books, on numerous occasions. The Gold Rush Replica's frame is a perfect reproduction of the design that triumphantly won the DuPont Prize. That record setting bike is now on display at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C.
The GRR has been much more than a racing bike for over two decades now. Its stiff aluminum frame is lighter and more efficient than steel. It's also strong enough to support a touring load and then some when coupled with our Expedition model distinction. Like its steel sibling, the Tour Easy, a long wheelbase yields excellent stability with a load, at low and high speeds. For those who thirst for speed, the Gold Rush offers an unparalleled ride. The standard components combine to make for an extremely tight handling, smooth operating bike, but try adding a carbon fiber fork and fairing for an unbelievable speed boost. Regardless of how you'd prefer your Gold Rush, a purchase of one these bikes is an investment in a truly exquisite, U.S. made machine.
