Check this out.

This guy is about 15 miles from my home. I have never been over there to see him build frames. However there are some very good process photos here. Lp

Ya, I would stop by just to check out some of his stuff in person. I love to support local builders of any kind as long as the prices are reasonable.

Loved the images of the bending of the fork blades. Very cool.

They are nice looking, but don't down tube shifters seem out of place on the Randonneuse?

He was at the NAHMBS in Indy so I got to see his personal red Randonneur bike and the blue Paisano in person, very nice.

Man, I love that baby blue Paisano! The behind the seat tube mounting for the pump is very cool too, though the pump doesn't seem to quite fit at the bottom. Very nice, nonetheless.
