THANK YOU for teaching me all I now know about bikes and bike building. Here, at long last, is the first result of my adventures in your mechanics and framebuilding classes from this spring.

Keith [Anderson], as you can see, did a magnificent job of making my fillets look far more fluid than they are in brass alone. The fork, unfortunately, is a purchased Bontrager touring fork which saved me having to set up right away for brazing and allowed me to get this put together much sooner (if four months is considered soon)!

Classic lugged steel!

I got the bike painted and assembled finally, my son was very impressed with how fast it went. I would like to thank you again for the great time that I had up there; it was a terrific vacation.

Some major miles …errr, kms…already!

Greetings from SF & 835kms later.. (I think that’s ~515 imperial miles) The bike & I made it in yesterday after leaving a week ago, so it’s holding up. It now looks a tad more used than the attached pic.

[Editor's note: Tai is from Australia and rode this bike from Ashland to San Francisco after class, on his way home!]
