    Ending the year with a bang...

    It's been a very good year...highlighted by the Bilenky. One last hit in 2013...



    Huge thanks to Jim for a great job facilitating and being the great guy that he is.

    Good guesses, but not even close. This one is an open mouthed gasp in amazement bike, and it looks like the perfect size.

    Rd with bullseye pulleys, yellow cables, blue paint, racks... Custom american tourer? Weigle?
    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.

    If the year was highlighted by a Bilenky then surely it can;t be a Sachs?

    I know already, too, so I won't ruin the surprise - but I'm salivating anyway; she's ready for her close-up

    Congrats, Aaron!

    Photos do not do this justice - the panels are a beautifully contrasting purple.

    Total garage queen - almost no flaws and rings look almost new. This thing is just on a different level; I've seen some amazing bikes in my day...but this one is just special.

    I'd love to know who did the paint.

    Very pretty!

    Really one of the prettiest blues I've ever seen and the condition is remarkable.

    Is it proper to ask what type of tubing she has? Most customs don't seem to have a label on them like the more mass produced bikes do...

    No label - post is 27.2. Mooney has ties to the Brits, but I don't know if that means a thing. Frame seems shockingly light for a tourer. It's steel

    I think he put two and two together from another thread. He's not a big name, but I think he's at the absolute top with the best builders alive. He's on the Weigle level.

    When I was talking to Aaron on the phone I told him the bike looks much nicer in person, I mean pictures don't do this bike justice. Prior to purchasing Aaron and myself reviewed ~130 very clear well taken photos. Aaron couldn't understand how it could look better than what 130 well taken pictures could show.

    There's just something about this bike....the build is phenomenal, someone put a lot of thought into this bike. Top notch in every way.

    Jim isn't kidding - the colors are just vibrant and the detailing is amazing. I haven't seen many bikes on par with this.
