 Along with a couple of frame repaints, I'm endeavoring to finish Tinas mixte. The monolug is almost doe. I've added the ports for the laterals, now just want to reshape the points.
 The rocker dropouts are brazed on.
 This will be the lug for the lateral supports. Long way to go........
I really want tapered laterals and none are made long enough. So I spliced two 560mm tapered seat stays together at the 14mm end. When cut, they will be perfect.

I've been busier than an old guy ought to be. But, Brodys frame is finished and here is the binder I fabbed for it.  I wanted it minimal.

Here is his frame through paint.

He has been riding the hell out of it on the Chehalem mountain gravel roads.

Working hard on Brodys frame. The canti posts are brazed in place.

 Doing a post braze fit check. Right on!

End of the day yesterday. Almost done.
Here is a couple of shots of Gregs completed bike. So sweet and weighs in substantially less than 23 lbs.ready to ride. And that's with 35mm tires and disc brakes.

 With Gregs bike nearing completion, I thought it was time to show Brodys whip some love.
 The seat stays are fully silver brazed in.
 Working on  the bridge. This tubing is actually smaller in diameter than the seat stay. Doesn't look like it in the pic, though. The bend is too acute, I'll bend a smoother one tomorrow.
Fitting up the canti bosses. And as always, thank you Don Ferris for your beautiful stuff!

The color sanding and buffing out the nibs,etc. is done.

Time to start the frame saver and assembly, unless Greg wants to do his own component build. I already put on the rear caliper, couldn't stop myself.

The Blue and first coat of clear is on. I put the decal this morning and it went swimmingly! I will let it dry over night before I start sanding for the second coat of clear. I want to make sure there no moisture entrapment under the decal.
