I got the De Bernardi back from Jack, at Franklin Frames and he did his usual bang up job on the painting and torch work. I had him braze up the brake holes in the fork crown and rear brake bridge. Then I had him bead blast and paint it the butterscotch color you see along with a gold translucent pin stripe to all the lug work. I think it came out wonderful concidering the crappy paint job that came from the factory. The attached J-pegs tell the story. Now I finally like the bike. It looks like an old skool bike and rides like one too.
