    I'm going to want to build the frame my self. Where could i by the frame parts? As in the Head tube? 1 (1/8)" Threadless preferably.

    Also, Do you guys think using lugs would be smart? or just stick to Mig welds?

    The headtube is easy- Nova (in CA), Henry James, Ceeway... any of those folks will have it for you. Just google one of them up. I don`t think you could find a headlug that would fit such a fat "downtube" or a T shaped lug for the back, but ya never know.

    Decide before you order whether you`ll be using a lug or not. The "lug" HTs are thinner walled in order to have the correct OD. For fillet brazing or welding, the OD doesn`t matter, so you can use the thick walled tubes- probably much better chances that way.

    good call, he's not going to find a lug so he should get the lugless head tube stock. Trying to make something like that without being able to fabricate some parts is going to be frustrating at best.
