This frame and fork are designed and built around 650B wheels. The lugs are from Richard Sach and are called Rene Singer. The fork crown and bb shell are Pacenti. Built with light tubes and painted by JB. There's a custom stem, tail light and front rack but I'll wait to get complete bike pictures. Then I'll post pictures of the complete bike.

I finally got this project painted. The frame has bi-laminate construction which is fillet brazing combined with lugged construction. The paint color is a stock color for a 1938 Ford Model A. It's sort of blue and sort of green depending on the light. The fenders are Honjos. I almost didn't mask off the ends but I think the fenders look better like this.

Built with Sachs lugs, crown and bb shell. Light tubes and will be built with Tune parts. This will be an all out race bike first with the ability to add fenders in the off season. I'm happy with how it all turned out. The paint is white with an alabaster pearl in the clear. It doesn't show well in the pictures but in person it's quite striking.
