Build, paint, and mosey

Here’s an update on Andrea’s cross/touring frame. All is well here even though I’m working mainly with one hand after a mighty (dumb) crash on the flatland bike. I need to get it painted before the big move which is happening as we speak. This weekend large machines will mosey across town to our new space at 523 Charles Street. Check it out. Come on by or give a call if you want to mosey with us.

Okay, back to the bike. I need to do a little bit of cleanup work and then it’s priming time. Here are some pictures of the progress until the final product is revealed in our next installment.

It’s like a big bike, only smaller.

So the second and third fillet brazed Circle A flatland frames are complete as of this morning. Hope Jon and Jared are happy with the final product. I tried to document the process from start to finish for Jon. I kind of like the visual updates so I’ll probably be doing that for my future builds. Here are some pics for those who don’t have the patience for the slideshows.
