Arthi’s gunsmoke and fuchsia single speed is done. So done that she rode it away two days ago with Katie and her new 8-speed commuter that Chris built. It’s always exciting to see a bike that we’ve built get ridden away by its new owner. After two and a half weeks of metalworking and painting, I have to let go and trust that it’s in good hands. I might be exaggerating a little…but only just a little. Here are the shots I got of it before building it up.

The current project is a fillet brazed single speed for Mike. It’s pretty minimalist with very few braze-ons and svelte little dropouts. Along with the fillet brazed frame, the unicrown fork and stem are also fillet brazed. So much brass, so little time. More pictures to come soon.
