Thanks indeed! I loved the experience ( just a couple of hours) - a world away from my NHS day job. Where did you get your torches etc from?
Excellent work by the way!
WeldEquip I think. And LondonGases
that’d be me :D
Well what a coincidence. What’s your framebuilding story?
well, repaired a few frames, but as my collection is almost complete, i turned my head to 4wheeled money pits, so brazing is on hold for now. might do something this summer though, will see :)
keep the pics coming, it is really entertaining and is always nice to learn how others do stuff!
Get some proper goggles you massive, yet handsome flange!
“HFB - Handsome Flange Bicycles”
Make it happen
Haha yeah I should. Do want some like Tom
Someone you guys know?
Just cleaning up, otherwise done. Had little motivation recently. Life got in the way.
Job well done. You do need to build the fork for it now. Wood blocks jig and braze away... with silver!
Really neat work Phil.
Thanks chaps. It’s definitely not to the standard that I aspire to achieve but I’m happy enough for a first go. I’m pleased with how the cable routing came out considering I nearly didn’t go for the internal because of the difficulty but it was relatively simple in the end.
I need to get it reamed and faced then painted.
So neat. Am inspired.
Cable routing is a really nice touch.
Looks really smart, great work. Is it the stainless internal routing from Ceeway? I did get some for my frame but ended up not bothering with it, did it go in alright with brass rather than silver?
It’s actually a brass tube brazed in with silver :)
Does look a bit more brassy in the photos but compared to the lug shorelines where it’s a really gold colour you can kind of see the difference.
Getting the tube in was a right pain since I assembled the frame before doing it. I knew it would be better to do it in the open top tube before brazing but my drill died and I was anxious to get the frame together.
This is sick, just read all 11 pages. Inspiring me to take it one step further and build a frame in my bedroom
Well I got that completely back to front haha. Looks really smart either way. I'll have to give it a go with the next frame, the price of silver solder was putting me off a bit.
Really looking forward to seeing it built up.
Great job, amazing you did this in your kitchen!
What are your plans for paint/finishing?
Gonna get it done at a local painters. Probably Vaz.
Yeah, but what colour!
It’s gonna have sparkles isn’t it.
'Local' aint vaz...
