With that massive of a head tube, it almost seems like you need a bigger steerer so it doesn't look so puny (or at least fatter spacers).

In the eye of the beholder territory, but this old Mack truck has plenty of character & patina.

Guess you have to see it in real life. It rides even better than it looks.

I do have to admit that I love the rear dropout cutouts. That's a really cool feature.

Meaning you took the picture you're going to post ... - your business is second-rate (income, cofession and shoe size also ... ).

Oof. I'm certainly not in the habit of taking pics of vehicles, so I don't have anything in the recent catalog to pull up. It's winter in MN, which means that the nicer cars are left inside and the rest are salt-crusted, and the Minneapolis Auto Show isn't until March... You're trying to make this hard on me, aren't you, macfred?
