    Thanks Alice.

    Just wondering, Cassave. How much input did your wife have in the design? Did she want to get in on any of the fabrication fun too, or mostly just sit it out? I `m really trying hard to constrain myself and not fill up yet another page with gibberish about what an absolutely beautiful frame that is, but...
    Damn! It almost hurts to look at. Goes beyond lust.

    Certainly a beauty! The Mid-stays, are they straight tubing in the forward section. Seems to be what you said, but shadows, or something, are making it hard for me to tell.

    She had no direct input really. She doesn't like drops or riding in traffic or messing with gears so: Upright bars, 3 sp hub, easy geometry for bike path use.

    Fabrication fun!!? No. The workshop is MINE I tell you, MINE!

    She is looking forward to the first ride however.

    I started a neat stainless tube rack last night.

    The midstays forward of the seattube are 1/2" x .035 4130. Behind the seattube I used a set of single taper seatstays. The 1/2" tube just fit into the 14mm OD end of the stays making a nice fit.
    That provides a nice taper back to the dropouts.

    No. I asked my wife if she wanted downtube decals like the bike in the "How to Build a Lugged Steel Frame...." thread and she said no, keep it simple.
    The only decal is the tubing sticker.

    I'll shoot color and first clear tomorrow, a very light blue with cream head and seat tubes. Very close to the blue you used.

    Got the frame and fork painted over the weekend.
    Lug windows need another coat of cream and the gold lug pin striping gets done tonight.

    Then another coat of clear and it'll be ready to build up.






    The Nova tubes were fine to work with.

    I think that "hairy leg" comment from earlier in this thread nixed that possibility.

    I should have been a racer. Don`t worry- if you keep giving her nice stuff like that, I don`t think I`d ever get my turn shaved or not. Outstanding job from top to bottom. Over and out.

    Thanks.
    She won't cut me loose until the honeydo list is worked off.

    Current schedule for that looks like late August, 2051................

    Jim!

    Long time no see.
    Thanks. Bike gets built up this Sunday afternoon.

    No shop except the one you know. One's enough (or too many)......

    Just about finished...........
    Built the bike up on Sunday afternoon except for the shifter. The modern SA two button shifter is huge. I've ordered an "old' style single lever trigger shifter so that has to wait until
    it arrives later in the week.
    A few pics:
