All brazed up with EP in the background working on his frame.
Bam! all polished up, just like that. ready for braze-ons. OK - I gotta say that building bikes with all straight tubes is REALLY easy compared to my "signature" frames with all the curves, bends and two-piece seatstays - like, *days* easier..........
This will see no filing - it's good to go.
Some metal sweetness waiting for Barry W. to pick it up.
Our new pad! It's in Camp Verde, AZ - 3,800 feet lower then our little house/shop at 7,000ft. We got it as an investment in our future, it's got a 1.25 acre farm that we will massively downsize to a small personal garden, a huge yard & the 30-ish fruit trees already established. We will retire here someday likely, as it's allot warmer & pretty flat. It's also grandfathered into the river, which is very hard to find in AZ. mountains all around & near to many recreation possibilities. The entire lower level is concrete so I can do work down there as well. Not moving the shop, however!
Home made biscuits with scrambled eggs, elk gravy & homemade salsa - thanks, Eric!
This was 1,700 tomato plants last year. it will get plowed under & be grass with whatever tomatoes can pull through.
Some really great garlic!
That's it for now, everyone. Way, way busy as you can imagine. Working like just crazy - only been biking once since thanksgiving, and only for 1.5mi. before my bike broke, hopefully going out to ride on Fri - be good to get out on the dirt! Thanks all for a great 2010, All you people out there are to thank for what I do. Here's to a great 2011!! - Steve.
