The last few weeks have been filled with building steel frames. Here are a few recent ones almost ready to be picked up or shipped out , depending on destination. This one is just going to the east bay so there is a chance the customer might be able to drop by and pick it up personally.
This is a typical Team Euro meant for racing in Nor-Cal.
This pink one is also a bay area customer and a member of the racing team. He is not getting the team color but has decided to go rogue in a way. The tubeset is really light and the frames is well under 4 lbs.
This is the most recent path racer almost ready for assembly. The owner wanted no decals and a flat clearcoat. It actually looks very nice in person-the photos don't really convey the look very well.
This customer is also a bay area resident and will pick this up as a complete bike ready for fixed gear touring....that's right, I'm not kidding-trans continental fixed gear touring to be more precise. He's a mightier man than I.
This frame will not be picked up by the owner as it is bound for Taipei, Taiwan. The black came out glassy smooth. This is a Team euro that will accept fenders and a braze -on front derailleur.
The wishbone seatstay was a request from the customer. I tried to bring in the seat stays a little to make it a little sleeker than the mountain bike version.
The headtube will have a sterling silver head badge instead of the usual decal, a nice upgrade to the overall look.
This rack represents about 5 weeks of work. It's like a rainbow right now.
