Stan & Jude - tubes in, bikes out.

Ahhhh - high gloss black. much like the proverbial "little black dress" it leaves little to imagination & hides even less........every imperfection jumps right out at you, but this frame is smooooth. just waiting on silver decals to send this gem to WI.
i really tried to blend all the fillets perfectly & i'm proud of the effort.

man, that looks cool in the snow. we got more snow & we have drifts that i estimate at 10-12+ feet with an all over coverage of around 4'.

fillet brazing sure is allot of work but worth the end results are distinctive & worth it.

here is Jude's 650B fresh out of the dunktank this morning. gonna put in a good pull on polishing it up today & get it off for a coat of Turquoise ASAP.

i have been really getting in the groove brazing. a hot fast pre-heat with a huge flame & then detail work with a smaller precise flame.

FFF = fine fresh fillets.

Security Force!

that's it for now dedicated readers {all 85!} thanks, all - Garro.

That glossy black steel frame stuck in the snow is crazy beautiful.

Ahh, to be a dog. In terms of hedonistic lifestyle they reign supreme. Followed closely by those of us lucky enough to own and ride a garage full of fine, handbuilt steel bikes...
