I'm just a sucker for frames with chainstay U-brakes... Like the front brake pulley stem too!

WOW...loved these BITD and they are just as beautiful now!!

Isn't it funny just how thick and heavy they used to make bars?? Found the same on rebuilding late 80's stuff to spec....:D

I'm envious and keeping an eye on this one!!
