WTB: Indy Fab project frame

Working on a commuter and looking for an IF road/cross/29er frame or Frame/fork. Don't care what condition the paint is as the purpose is not a garage queen.

can make a 54cm to 57cm TT work although the larger size is better. with regards to a 29er let us say a 23 to 24inch TT.

rim brake is preferred, but disc is fine.

shoot me a pm or email independentapple@gmail.com if you have something.

Looking for low cost, but I realize I am also looking for a specific brand, so hit me up and we can sort something out.


cheers

dave

Question

Is that pink IF for sale? That looks like a blast.

Yeah, I guess so. I didn't think it would get so much interest, but I have several inquiries.

Waiting to hear from Dave, who expressed interest in the past and gets first right of refusal. If he passes, I'll be in touch in order of inquiry. Drop a PM if you are interested and I'll send details. It would include the built bike (Paul's brakes, Phil hubs, etc.), S&S box, packing tools (net, lube, tube covers, tool). Don't know how realistic it is, but I'd love to net $1,500.

If someone wanted just the frame I would be less, of course.

WTB: this thing (depending on size).

If you do only sale the frame set, I'd be interested in the brakes and levers.

Regardless you know I love this, but if you have offers for the full amount, please jump on them and make as much as you can!

We both know I love it and well. Sell her to the highest bidder!

Cheers

No offers yet, just some questions. I feel like this belongs with you. Make an offer.

Size, it's a largish frame, a bit small for me, but is super packable. I can post measurements (maybe in my own FS thread so I can stop clogging Dave's). It was originally built for The Jerk.

Man, that’s some serious pedigree. Steve Martin was so effing funny back then!

That pink Indy fab is so cool. If it were an XL that would be awfully tempting.

I'm predicting in the near future the return of the rigid bike (already sort of happening) and v-brakes!
