Gus Solman

A few weeks ago I purchased an early Ron Stout frameset. I wanted to repair it and get it back into riding shape. The decal on the bike was the oddly small downtube decal. I contacted Gus and he was able to create a very nice set of decals for the bike.

The thing I like most about the process is that Gus guided me on sizing of the new decals and how they would work best to duplicated Ron Stout's previous decal placement and designs. This is the first of two projects that Gus supported me in recently. Both projects, he was a pleasure to work with. Top man. Contact at ussalmon@gmail.com.





Thanks again Gus.

Does he also go by "Solman" or is that a typo? I've only known him as Salmon.

He also made excellent custom decals for me. Made suggestions that improved them over what I was asking for.

The Northwest misses him!

Also, Stout looks very Cinelli like. In a good way.
