The search went out for a frame and donor bike.
I found a donor bike on Craigslist with great components and in his size too, but he wanted an older steel frame.
so I picked up this Jamis Quest as a donor and searched for a frame.

@fleslider came thru with a quality '89 Ironman frameset with some cosmetic issues and we got to work stripping it down to bare metal.
Some chemical stripper and a bunch of Emory cloth later, we had a bare frame ready to paint.


after chem strip...

darn stuck and stripped dropout screw!

and its ready to paint!
