 The filler for the top tube socket is brazed in and rough finished.  Notice the occlusion, or void, right above the socket.  I'll fill it with silver later.
 I brassed the dropouts on as I'm out of silver.
 This will be an easy fit up, thanks to Anvil.
I opted for a narrow, sloped crown to keep the fork as petite as possible.  I want it to blend in with the small frame and not over power it.  However, the 160 mm rotor just touches the fork.  I noticed that some of the other frame builders run a 140 mm rotor up front as a fix, but, I believe I will dimple it enough to give it 5 mm clearance.
