I have been waiting on the right time to put this bike together for a while. The frame needed some minor paint touch-ups; as much as I like patina, I couldn't leave that much bare metal exposed to rust away!

A set of white Bullseye cranks miraculously fell into my hands, for dirt cheap. They were missing b.b. cups, but my man felixdelrio generously sent me a set. Another friend then fabricated an 'IRD' style crank keeper, and I was all set...

Thanks everyone! Paul Brodie made some great bikes didn't he? Head tube is tall, and that's a 19" frame! Comfy though, like he was building it for the late 40s version of me... ;)
