Have you ever thought in to this fix for a master with rusted lugs and stays?? swap the lugs for SS ones and replace the stays with SS blades and repaint the colnago back up to get ti back to glory?? I know wont be cheap... but wonder if can be done...

Aaron, I think this is the best looking bike I've seen come from your workshop. Your esthetics, attention to details and sensibilities are really gaining attention. Bravo!

That sounds like a lot of work, it would be easier just to build a new frame. I have 3 gilco tubesets awaiting a special project Additionally, I would be hesitant to put the tubes through that many heat cycles, especially since I believe those Colnago's were brazed with LFB.

Do you happen to have a beat up old master lying around?

Thank you Dave, this frame was a lot of work but much more aligned with my personal tastes. Also, bringing paint back home has been wonderful not only for the finished product but also for its creative aspects. Much appreciated, I hope all is well in the South or North or wherever you may be.

Well chroming in those masters just sucks or the owners did not clean them too much and the rust starts to eat the chrome, u know that so just wondering about a way to fix them up w/o going to a rechroming process that can be equally expensive maybe.

No i do not have a busted master, wish I had because I would totally give it to you to practice fixing it :P

BTW what is LFB??

I would take you up on that offer if it existed

LFB is low fuming bronze, which is what many of us refer to incorrectly as brass.

Wish this were a stainless steel king headset, however, it still seems to fit the bill. The chrome platers say the stems will be done in 3 weeks, one which will be attached to this bike.

Also started making progress on this bi-lam small roadie. Even when I'm not doing lugs I'm doing lugs.

I really think this color helped sell some PT Cruisers

Rossin restoration ready to head back out on the road. This had some really bad rust and peeling/flaking graphics.
