    Talisman Metal Craft- Seattle Framebuilder (Need Info)

    I built up a frame and fork that has Talisman decals on it. I have found limited information online regarding the builder Robb Collins. The most information came from S&S Machine but the owner their doesn't not recall anything. I also emailed Rodridguez in Seattle and no one remembers him.

    previous BF thread- I emailed the poster but no reply.

    The bike has a Henry James fork crown and Ritchey dropouts. Looking for any info.

    I also own a Talisman (pictures if you want). Is there something you'd like to know about it? I know folks who know folks that know about the builder. I was a messenger in Seattle for a while and bought it at a "bike swap" there (about 8 years ago). The frame is holding up well, but the salt air of Oahu is beginning to corrode the paint job quite a bit.

    Nice looking bike, but the excessive amount (even for big tires) of crown clearance is throwing me off.
