I found a pic of the headbadge. It's a family symbol/character. I have no idea if it's legible but I hope it is as it's not easy to take brush strokes and translate them into stainless steel with a jewler's saw and files. One thing is for sure, there isn't another one like it!

Three colors+ mucho masking+ four days =done!

I just realized I didn't get a pic with the headbadge on (it had to go on last because it would have interfered with the masking/pinstriping) but I wasn't the only one taking pictures... expect a quick update if/when I find one.

Some bare metalwork for ya before the paint goes on.

Classic seat cluster with "half wrap" seatstay caps and requested symbol.
                                                             Drops with stainless faces.

              Back end showing the chevron shaped bridge I love to use. I first saw it 8 or 9 years ago on a fixed frame built by Whitney Moyer. Moyer had a great eye when it came to lugged fixed gears, nobody did them better. Ufortunately, he doesn't build anymore, but the bridge lives on!

                                                    Front showing the nifty Sachs lugs.
The low trail fork gives this bike a classic British path racer look to go along with it's snappy handling and smooth ride...perfect for a road going fixed gear.
