brazing detail shots for Shabir & all. i'm gonna hit this thing hard tomorrow & get it off to paint along with Aki's bike. i'm not solid on the color - if you get this, Shabir, fill me in..........Nate's bike should return from Spectrum soon, too - there's been a lack of painted bikes to show lately!
