moving forward little by little on this build. had a very interesting morning/early afternoon today. a friend took me out to paul brodie's place. i took this frame to see if i could get him to address some of the issues it has. good news, he accepted the project. not much of a challenge for the likes of him. then it will be ready to go to toxik harald for paint.
frame has lots of dents and broken off seized bolts in various holes and missing threaded insert for one of those wheels that loop the front derailleur cable around to make it a bottom pull from a top running cable.
must have spent 3 hours hanging out.
and at one point, usually too early for me, a bottle of tequila came out.
good friday turned out to be great friday this year!!!!
we talked about all sorts of stuff and yes brodie bikes was a topic. no he will not be making any more gatorblade forks in the future. and as of yet has not even thrown a leg over the whippet bike. so has no idea how it rides.
also turns out he may have a few things to sell too. that is something poeple must not say around me.
i'll leave it at that for now. but stay tuned. got some swag too.
