thinking about drewing a frame I built

Frame is 28 years old, never been ridden or painted. Reynolds 531SL. Don't think I want DT shifters, thinking about getting rid of the campy bb cable guides and replacing them with something more contemporary. Needs another set of water bottle cage bolts. It's getting a carbon fork (thanks luker). Pictures later.

we are winging it on that one, the definition of "drewing" is ever evolving.

You built it, it you modify it you are not drewing it. Still, photos?

For my position on this, see kpug505's signature line. (as I put on my Nomex suit in preparation for Bigwoo's response)

You're joking... right?

Edit: Well... after paying more attention to the title of the thread *slaps forehead*. I wouldn't consider it drewing. Are you intending to heat the joints and remove the brazing properly and do it differently? That's not drewing, that's actually pretty cool. I'm wanting to do this whole framebuilding thing... though as a career. I say go for it. What are your plans for it?

If this 'drew' meme goes viral, I can say I saw it first on C&V. Who gets credit for its creation?

EDIT: I see Kurt made the first attempt to formalize it.

You know, it's possible poor Drew is being unfairly maligned here. Whose to say he's the one who attempted to alter that frame? Just because his name was on the frame? Do hipsters add name decals to their rides?

Drew either knew the guy who did it, or did it himself, I think we can be sure of that. So it's drewing from now on.

I got talked out of my plans at the bike shop, they had the parts to do what I wanted without any cutting. Still have to put another set of water bottle bosses on there though.
