Inglis Light Tourer/All-Road

Picked up in Napa this morning.

Originally built for my wife in '03 as more of a fast road bike with clearance for fenders. Needs/wants change so we had Curtis chop and replace the front end, dimple the chainstays, build a fork and add some braze-ons. Now it's a light tourer/all-road bike with, at my wife's specific request, no toe overlap.

It used to have couplers, a Wound-up fork and long reach side pulls.

Tasty. Love yellow bikes. I had 90s Paramount painted powdered RAL 1003. Awfully close to that.

Compass, MAFAC or Paul?

Looks like you found a mate that is also in the upper range of height!

Paul "long" Racers. Going to see tonight if it will fit my no longer used Compass 44s, re-build was configured for Compass 38s and fenders.

That is funny. Saw this on my FB feed this morning. Was checking out the post mount Racers of course.

Nice!

Correct, if anyone wants a 390 AtC Wound Up please let me know. AtC was raised to 385 and rake to 51 (from 45).

I think I missed something. How do you "undo" couplers? Did Curtis braze in a section of tubing where the couplers used to be?

I took it that the TT, HT and DT were all replaced.

Yes, it was my wife's first custom and they have a lot of history together. I initially suggested selling it and buying a new frameset, but she wouldn't have any of it. I didn't push.

After moving to a rearward cleat position to address some foot issues there was significant toe overlap with the original geo. She had a couple bad experiences with this that soured her on riding it so keeping it for a travel bike wasn't in the cards.
