Picked this old cascade mountain archery “alpine” by fred anderson the other day. I got this bow from the original owner and he still had all the original paperwork and even the tube it was sent in. The bow was painted with a white base coat with brown over the top. I knew there was a beautiful bow underneath so I went ahead and scooped her up. The bow came in the mail today and I got some rubber gloves and some wash clothes and some acetone and went to work. I was able to get the brown paint off fairly easy but the white is on there thick. It’s been a real buggar. Im determined though and when I get done, it should look pretty good. That paint was on there thick so the finish is pristine underneath other than some horizontal finish crazing. This is a hill style bow and I honestly have been searching for one of these models for some time. My late buddy leo used to tell me about these all the time. He never could track one down either. This bow has a unique limb configuration and I can’t wait to try it out. The bow is flawlessly crafted like all of freds creations. This bow is 68” and 58@28. Here’s the progress so far.
