I had previously completed my touring bike build that I plan to ride cross country, pictures of my titanium tourer in my profile, until Sanner Cycles moved from Palo Alto California to Austin Texas.
Tim Sanner seems to offer a deal when it comes to teaching you how to build your own custom bike and I figured what better way to ride Coast to Coast then on a bike I built myself.
So today I start build day #1 of 4 with hopes to leave the class with a bike that can make it cross-country.
Day 1-- Drawing, cutting all tubes
Day 2-- Braze seat stay caps, Final prep, jig setup, tack frames
Day 3-- Brazing main joints, aligning
Day 4-- Braze ons, etc.
You can see previous BikeForum folks who built a bike with Tim here - http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ding-Adventure and on his site.
I will try to keep this a running thread as I go through the process and results.
