Can anyone tell me how I can Learn about a ROSS I just purchased? All I have is the serial number 186-2325, and an outdated sticked from a now non-existent dealer.
Thank you

Ross was an American company out of PA. I assume you have a roadbike. Their lineup was mostly pretty low-end and often appeared in department stores however for a few years in the mid to later 1980s Ross produced some nice quality roadbikes. CroMoly frames and, I believe, Shimano 600 components.

If yours is one of these it's a good quality bike from the 80s. Not particularly valuable/collectible but if it's clean and straight will give you good service and last just about forever. If the "engine" is strong a "retro" bike can keep up with the new ones quite well.
