Good to see the Mooneys! I have one of course, but an sadly still digital camera illiterate. Set up not too differently than yours. Cantilever brakes, but same racks front and rear. (And returned from the farmers market this morning with them filled.)

I also have two American built built ti bikes (TiCycles). (Both have steel forks - does that qualify?) A road bike and a fix gear (designed with a very long road style horizontal/vertical dropout so pulling wheels for cog changes is fast). And a very American, very steel '83 Trek.

Alot of nice ones , but I think we got off the tracks alittle , yes all are built in US , but quite a few pictured are production line bikes, I was thinking of more like the American Bike builders that put their own names on the downtubes, and more than likely cut the tubing, jigged it and brazed it himself and probably even painted it !
