drop an old school beat

Some time in the spring of 1978 I built my first frame. Back then lugged construction was pretty much how bikes were built with few exceptions. Here it is nearly 32 years later and I'm building a frame not unlike old # 1. What is different this time is that instead of taking 150 plus hours to build a frame and fork, I'm getting this one built in approximately 24 hours of shop time, give or take. I'm happy with the results, although it really won't be pretty until the paint goes on. This is a 'Path Racer', one of about five that I have produced-all of which have been bult in the last two years and are ridden quite a bit. Hopefully that will be the case with this one.
