Richard Sachs framebuilding kits

I just noticed this and am very tempted. Pretty reasonably priced, too.

Neato, that is a great idea, particularly coming from someone that people would want a complete kit from. Is there any requirement to have insurance or be 10 year in the business. I thought his lugs had some kind of mild restrictions on them at one time.

I've bought directly from him in the past and as I build for me and my wife I don't have insurance (but am thinking to go real soon...) But I have been doing this stuff for a long time. Andy.

You don't need insurance to buy from Sachs. I really like the casting on his lugs, they need a lot of cleaning to get them to fit, at least in my experience, but it keeps the gaps minimal. Often times Nova cycles has great deals on frame kits as well as henry james. Another option would be from Ceeway in the UK, even with shipping their prices are very competitive and they have kits with everything you need including all the braze-ons.

Then possibly a quiet change. A few years back he stated he would only sell to those who did have a policy. Of course, the castings were available through sources who did not ask, so there was a workaround.
