Wow. this is a 2 thousand dollar bike now. You need a custom headbadge after this much work. good show !


I have no idea what it worth $$$ but to me it is priceless... it served as a test bed for many ideas and building it was part of my apprenticeship. My partner and master builder said that after I did this work he considered me to be qualified to build any frame.

With that I still see a few little spots where I might have done prettier work or had to do a little more clean up than someone else but the frame is rock solid and does everything I wanted it to do.

A custom head badge might be a good idea although the Philip's badge is pretty sweet... perhaps custom decals would serve me well.

Tange rear stays with V brake bosses added, cable through guide was originally a cable stop that was drilled through as the bicycle design uses fully enclosed housing save for one small section at the derailleur.

Having real dropouts with a derailleur hangar was pretty essential.

Those die cast Dropouts look such an improvement on the nasty steel plate originals.

V brake bosses replaced the old cantilver bosses...
