This is my UBI project. Obviously a work in progress - the photos were taken during the two-week framebuilding class in May '07. I've been filing and sanding fillets ever since.

All the parts are in house - wheels nearly built. I'm going to build it up for a test ride before I get it painted.

This is a track-only bike, with tight clearances and no accommodation for brakes. It probably won't see any racing action this year, since there's only a few weeks left in the San Diego Tuesday Night series.

I shouldn’t see such things…

Makes me want to learn to do it too, and well, you know no good will come from that…

I commend you man, you go girl!

holy jesus

big head tube is bigggggg.

Why paint it?

I think it looks killer without the paint!

I'm tempted...


It does feel like kind of a shame to paint it after all that work filing and polishing. Unfortunately there are a couple of low spots in the fillets that will have to be Bondo'ed - maybe my next bike will go naked.

There was a lugged bike at NAHBS this year (was it Henry James?) that was scuffed up with some coarse sand paper, then clear coated. You could see the perfect silver edges around each lug. Really amazing.

i recently restored a early 40's rollfast with beautiful brazing
i stripped it to repaint it and i ended up just getting it clearcoated because it looked so good. you should do the same especially since you built it.
