Tomorrow's the Day!

My plan is to build up my new frame tomorrow and ride to a family gathering. I applied Framesaver a few days ago and yesterday I did some preliminary soldering of the lighting system.
I was going to do it at the shop but will bring a few tools home to do the job.
I will post some pics!

Have fun! Nothing beats the stoke of going for a ride on the first frame you built.

Probably because your pictures are too large. On my Mac I put them on my desktop and then downsized them in the tools section to a width/height of 20/15. Once they are downsized I can drag and drop them from my desktop to where they can be attached. Here you go. It looks great! I like how the pin striping turned out.

Andy, I got a 30 miker in on Monday. What a difference! It is hard to put into words how it feels. But it is more comfortable, I was riding in a higher gear more easily,it accelerates more quickly.
So I am quite happy!
Just spray painted the rear rack yesterday. I going to hang it in the attic to bake.
