A bit of the past re-emerges at the shop
The few frames that I build from this stuff will be very much in the style of the '60's and '70's when these bits were current. If you are looking for something for big tires, disc brakes or internal cables, these frames will not be for you. If you want a frame with traditional materials and have proper old parts for a retro build you'll be happy with what you get. These frames will be built in the style of the time when I first started building but with my 40+ years experience, they should be much better built than what I was doing back then. Everything down to the brazing rod and cable guides will be from this inventory and I will only substitute when I run out of a particular tube or fitting. Most of the tubing I have is Reynolds 531 but there is some Columbus as well. I will have the first prototype ( Pretty funny to call it that ..) back from the painter in a few weeks.
