Wayne's Llewellyn Lucentezza Cadenzia frame set

By the start of 2005 I was doing my own 3D CAD drafting, rather than farming it out and the resultant loss of interpretation from what was intended in my cranium to what the investment casting became. As an uneducated sod I jokingly called this process my PhD in frame making. I got the large text books and spent many evenings going through page by page the process of parametric modeling. I started simple and in steps escalated the complexity. In 2006 it was time to design and produce the Llewellyn dropouts. I took in the details of good dropouts I have used in the past and mixed in my desires. Lots of time on the 3D CAD program and after confirmations and tweaks via 3D printing some rapids, out of the mix came the dropouts. Hard to believe it was over ten years ago. Crikey! Wayne's drops are on the bench for a wee while of pondering.

Wayne's brief on the dropouts is "one of my favorite details on a Bespoke bike are the dropouts; make 'em gorgeous!!" I give this some thought on the hot and humid Friday. Scribble scribble and then the Whrrrr, whizzzz and file file file starts. I hope Wayno likes this?

These front drops are ready for the cook up. I think they will look sweet when polished and against the paint. Come to "Bespoked" and let me know.

Thanks for the details. BTW, which CAD software do you use?

Solidworks, the reason why was the foundry (LongShen) uses Solidworks as well so it helped the smooth process.

"Whoops" "You stupid #%&*#!!!$*&##!! Wally! You will have to start again with another left hand drop"

Do you spot the mistake?

A selection of Columbus tubes in XL, DOO or UOS or what ever you wish to call it, (I call it XL) it is all the same size and the walls and butts are not proprietary.

You're cooking on this one. Love the signature lug and dropout treatment.

The shaping is identical rather than mirrored.

This is shaping up to be another beautiful frameset from Dazza.

Work on the dropouts continues on a Monday



Die grinder, files then the sanding begins



120, 320, 800 and finally 1500 grit under balsa wood sticks. Sanding is the time consuming part of the process and it gives one plenty of time for contemplation about the world whilst listening to the radio




Polishing takes a few minutes and reveals if the sanding is done correctly




Wayne's fork blades are ready for the crown
