I'd like box lining. I'll talk to Bilenky about it. I'm most likely going to have him make me a stem for it.

Congratulations on the new bike! That's one of the first Taylors I've seen that has "Gothic" style transfers on the head tube, but "Mondrian" style transfers on the seat tube and down tube. Usually it's all one or the other.

good point. i actually didn't notice that until you pointed it out. He probably just used what he had lying around

Looking forward to seeing how that cleans up. I have number 7388, also a ToB, just four frames away. Kinda cool to think they were probably both together in the Taylors' shop all those years ago.

"Ooops."

It sort of accidentally stuck to you...

Even in it's "project" state, you can see how elegant it is.

Congratulations!




That's going to be a great bike!

Thanks guys! Here's a few pics of the Super Tourer I originally started this thread for.






more..

https://picasaweb.google.com/1133647...rSuperTourist#

it's a custom built frame according to the seller. 59cm ctc tt and 62ctt st. It's a little smaller than i normally ride but I still think within my range. I probably won't have time to build it up for several weeks to find out unfortunately...

Two real beauties, there, holiday. Interesting how the 1999 model has the modern mondrian-esque DT graphic and the older, gothic head badge. Not sure if I've seen them mixed like that on a JT. I'm guessing either that's what the original customer asked for, or that's what was left in the decal bin in the final days. My 1982 ToB has all Mondrianesque transfers.

What you said about having a bike built by someone who has had decades of experience building definitely applies here-- my 1982 JT has a supreme ride quality-- light and snappy yet stable and predictable. A better ride than any of my 700c bikes, and even with 32mm Grand Bois tires, it approaches the ride quality of my 650B Rawland with fat 42mm Compass tires. When I was shopping last year for a builder to build me my dream 650B all-rounder, I wanted to go with a local MA builder but ended up choosing Jeff Lyon way over on the other coast, primarily for his decades of experience and no-frills approach to building. So I totally get that about JTs.

Oh, and if you ever feel the 62ctc is too small for ya', give me a holler!

I saw a pair of JT tandems on RAGBRAI last week. They were beautiful machines! One orange, one red, both with downtube shifters.
