Hand Drawn Pinarello

This is a thread from the general forum. Ollo mentioning a one of a kind frame reminded me of this Pinarello. The close up pics are pretty cool.

Wow! I like it, but can't help wondering how it would look with colors? And which colors? Don

Not red boots in my case. But in many families from parents of the Depression, and being the youngest of three boys and a girl - meant everything was hand me down - and anything that fit, even with patches. Before Unisex was ever thought of…..
Luckily shoes had generally been worn out, even by Mom’s standards.

Why, yes. Woody's Custom Bicycle Fenders, actually. I get these from Cody Davis in Bend, OR. He does brilliant work, at what I think are fair prices. I try to use as much "organic" material as I can on my bikes. Steel frame, leather saddle, canvas bags, cork or leather grips... you get the idea. It's all about Quality.

Oh, but that's the thing, isn't it? YOU made it! How special is that? My bikes come together with the best parts I can afford, and the best work I can do myself. Quality. You know it when you see it, touch it, ride it... The key is to recognize when what you want is beyond what you can make yourself. Then, if the bike is worthy, you choose the best craftsman you can find (or afford) and get them to help you realize your vision. For the bikes I love, Woody's Fenders always provide that finishing touch.

it caught my eye particularly because this summer I met a cpl & asked about similar wooden rack covers. theirs were thin like yours, but just painted back. he tucked the front corners under the rack tubing & used 2 screws in the middle. he was very proud of them. seemed so simple. not nearly as attractive, but functional. weird thing, they caught my eye because they didn't have any rack trunks on them! hehe I guess they were good enough considering they don't seem to use them!

The rack decks are simple things, but they really stand out. What impresses me most are the compound curve wooden fenders:
