    Good News... The BOC landed yesterday, but with a nicely ripped open corner. I did not have time to open it as I was walking out the door yesterday, but will do so upon my arrival home today.

    What say ye of this then? I doubt I'd be able to get a finish even close to the original on this frameset, especially with the way the boxlining was applied.

    ^ My opinion is that the chroming is not quite nice enough to run as a bare frame, so I'd paint it.

    Hetchins shouldn't be the only purveyor of curly bicycles. The curly top and down tube is a nice differentiator.
  7. Mercian Anyone?

    Here is a super nice Mercian frame for someone looking for one. If I didn't already have too many projects, this would be on my radar.

    This is a fun thread, to say the least. It reminds me of a very entertaining thread that Narhay posted back in December 2012.

    It's only been up a few hours Henry. :) I have a feeling it'll go pretty fast.

    For me, I'm going to pass. I have too many projects in the queue and too little time.

    Hmmm, nice... Actually, that would work just fine with an IGH too. You wouldn't need a tensioner to make up for the lack of horizontal dropouts. No fork? Also, is that designed for 700c or 26" wheels?

    Yes, I remember the bicycle you had at Lake Pepin a couple years back had a SW hub installed. I did not realize you had went back to an AW hub. Good information to have.
