Framebuilders Thinking about a custom frame? Lugged vs Fillet Brazed. Different Frame materials? Newvex or Pacenti Lugs? why get a custom Road, Mountain, or Track Frame? Got a question about framebuilding? Lets discuss framebuilding at it's finest.

Looking for someone here to make a lugset..

Please PM me with a quote if you would be interested in undertaking the task of whipping me up a lugset.. I've got reference photos and need someone who will make what I ask for instead of trying to change this and that.

Thanks

If you're referencing the lugs from your other thread, I don't think making the lugset would be the way to go- 1. it doesn't seem like you need/want any angles out of the ordinary lug range, and 2.it would cost as much as the whole frame.
What I would do is use the Pacenti artisan lugs and add extensions on them, then carve them to the desired shape. More work than standard lugs for sure, but WAY less than making the whole lug set.
Like the lighting bolt extensions on the inside of this fork crown I did last July:

I agree, just get the Pacenti lugs and have them carved. The thought of fabricating a one off BB shell makes me lightheaded.

can barely see them in teh pics, b ut i definately get the idea.. very cool looking frame too!

yeh, i decided that pacenti was the way to go.. i thought the whole lug set was oversized and that i'd have to get a new headset etc etc, but was told today that the headtube is still 1" and it's just the TT and DT and ST that were slightly larger.

thanks for the advice guys.. gonna listen to it.

Rats, there goes my xmas fund. I was just going to volunteer my Pickering shop. If you can go to something pre-fab, then it makes a whole lot more sense.

One thing about such a job is that if there is someone out there contracted for the bike, and someone different contracted for the lugs, it would make it a little stressfull doing the BB lugs since they are dependent to some extent on having the tubes in a jig. It isn't going to be that much fun adjusting tigged 4130 lugs as it can be the stuff they put in commercial lugs.
