after I learned Brazing Skills, in a Metalsmithing Arts series of classes , I tackled a DIY frame in 1975..
learned things , like heat distortion effects , on tubes with lugged assembly,
chasing, facing, reaming in build prep* made the parts fit.
in my Bike shop time, Famed name frames expected the Selling Shop to Do *This..
helping sell a lot of frame prep tool sets..

but it still is a rideable bike .. today.. light touring style ..

never made enough money to own a house with a garage to take it any further..

bike # 2 was in co-operation with a frame building shop, he did some, I did some .
and I got to try out my own design adaptation of cargo bike/tandem frame materials..
