Construction – Lugged
This Bicycle is a touring model made a little heavier and with more fork rake for dirt roads. The ornate lug set was left alone but it was necessary to change a cross fork crown a bit to make it match. The stem with it’s matching lugs adds to the package, and a beautiful paint job in a dark blue with cream panels just gives it that classic touch. Everyone who sees this bike is drawn to it, and thinks it is a vintage restoration, but then when they see the modern components they realize that it is new. This bicycle is a fine example as to why I do this, and that is to create something beautiful that is pleasing to look at, but performs it’s function flawlessly without just being a tool.
