Jacque’s touring bike

This fendered beauty is for our friend Jacque who will be using it as her work commuter and occasional tourer. It’s built with a 6 degree slope in the top tube to bring the bars level with the saddle. There are clearances for 35c tires and braze-ons for front and rear racks. The gearing is compact in the front (50-34) with a 12-30t cassette in the rear. The metallic royal blue highlights the lug lines nicely but the secret of the paint job is in the panels. There are stars painted in the pearl white that are only visible in direct sunlight.

And this Coppi do-over was for our friend Katy who has it set up as a coaster brake cruiser. The unique color choice makes me so happy. Looks like such a fun bike.
