Winter Bicycles: "Thin Iggy" road

I built this as a sloping top tube frame made with modern heat treated alloys in classic diameters. It's built up with Force mechanical bits, a converted Cook Bros. compact double and some unmarked Tektro short reach brakes. It has enough room for a 25-28 and a fender or a 32mm slick depending on the conditions (shown here with 28's).










Full construction set here.

Great look. But I don't regret selling my Cook Bros cranks!

Great looking bike!

I used to rock those Cook cranks back in the day - and I used to leave chunks of skin from my ankle bone on the in center hole for the crank bolt! Ouch!

Thanks- all!

Following these links you can see all of the construction shots and the full web gallery.

Prolly and CycleExif were kind enough to pick it up- pretty good exposure (I've been getting web traffic from about 40 countries).

Beautiful.
What is the process for the paint? Is it a Hammerite-like product?
