I've been building custom bikes out of my garage, and doing more lately. I'll post another thread with recent acquisitions that I haven't build up yet. Here are some of the recent builds. Everyone in Chicago wants a single speed these days, so that's what I build most. I'm classy about it, though, and never damage the frame. Here are the bikes!
50cm '86 Schwinn Super Sport, before and after powdercoat, handbuilt wheels, sapim butted spokes
50cm Centurion Fixed gear, Tange 900 Double Butted chro moly tubes, stamped drops (?), New cartridge bearing wheelset.
62cm Nishiki Sport, 4130 chro moly, forged drops, new cartridge bearing wheels
More to come when I get some photos organized
