Lovely head tube detail, is it tig or fillet brazed or a combo of the two?

You must be a very happy chappy!

Fantastic :)

Yep pretty happy :D

The frame is just tig welded but the amount of powder coat makes it look a bit like fillet.

The frame is a 17.5" in mountain goat terms.

Chris.

That really is about as good as it gets IMO!

While I can understand the finished article in such work - and even how to reach it - it's the PATIENCE that goes into it that amazes me. I lose interest after a few weeks - a short attention span I guess.

Envy!
