    Lug help..

    Hi guys,

    I'm currently having a custom bike built up, and I asked the builder if he could make these lugs for me. I found pictures of them, and apparently they were from an Olmo frame. He said he wasn't able to make them because they are a little too long, and suggested that I ask around.

    Would anyone here happen to have a set of these or be able to fabricate them?









    Cheers,

    vg

    hmm answering my own question, i just noticed that pacenti lugs could be shaved and shaped to possibly get this look.

    ...at a cost of course. How badly do you want to copy someone elses look?

    well, it started out that i wanted a frame with that specific lug style.. i managed to narrow it down to chiorda's and olmo's that had it. spent months trying to find one that fit, couldn't.. so i ended up putting a deposit on a custom bike that would have the lugs i wanted.

    Custom lugs can be made, but it might behove you to fall in love with some other lugs and put all your money into an even plusher project.
