Slow Steady Progress

A few more pix:

Lower Head Tube Filet

I little bumpy on the the outside.

Filing away.

A little more sanding and we'll have a nicely radiused filet.

A few more pix

Here is a downtube cable stop.  Polish needs a bit of touch up.  can you see the heart-shaped cutouts?

Hard to see from this side, but the front derailer hanger is polished.

And the bottom bracket is almost done.  Just a bit more sanding.

Shiny Bits

Working on some shiny bits for Nick's crit bike.  Looks like there are still some gouges to sand out before completing the buff job.

Nick's Crit Bike

Charlies mountain bike is almost ready paint.  Just a bit of sanding and painting.  Meanwhile, Nick's Crit bike is coming along.  After tube fit up, I've brazed the seat tube and down tube to the BB.  A bit of filing and sanding left, then on to the head tube.  BTW, the alignment is looking very good at this point.  So on to pictures.
Seat tube tacked in.

Down tube fit up looks good even after tacking the seat tube.

Filet ready for filing and sanding.

And the head tube fit up still looks tight!

See ya next time.
