This bike is sort of an ecclectic build of parts from several eras, but is probably classic nevertheless. If only I had a matching red one...






A genuine Joe Breeze machine








I found this blue headset cap to complement the frame nicely..

Term, I have it figured that if you posted one of your bikes a week it would take you about a year to complete the mission. :)
Heheh. Optimist, are we? ;) BTW, the B29 is at Anvil... I'm nervously anxious and can't wait for the results.

Dang... can't believe I forgot to upload this pic of Joe and myself.




...and here's a nice action shot taken by MTBR's Raymond.

More like a realist I think. Can't wait to see it again! That was a weak wallet moment in life that I probably will never get over.......

On the cruiser topic, I have been riding my coaster brake bike and it is funny how much of a difference there is riding one. Seems like it was alot easier when I was a kid :rolleyes:

what's happening at Anvil? :eek:
A wee bit of custom ti work if all goes well. Don is looking into machining a custom IS disc tab and welding it on. The frame was setup for discs, but it was the Amp style mounts. I love the looks/concept of the Amps but since they're no longer around...

Don seems to know what he's doing and also has an artistic flair so I'm confident that the results will be very nice. Here's a photo (from Don's site) of a frame that he created some custom dropouts for. If you look carefully you can see that the owner's initials "CC" are cut into the dropout!

Trust me. There's hardly a day that goes by without my thinking "how fortunate am I?!!!". As you can see, I'm sorting of taking my own sweet time to try and do everything properly with the build. I will ride no bike before it's time. :)

Bravo! It's definitely a whole 'nother ball game and I agree that it WAS easier when we were kids. Back then it seemed so intuitive, but wow does it take some thinking at this age! Glad to see it's not just me.

The pics work now, must have been a server hiccup?
Good to hear. It's much easier for me to FTP up bunches of pictures at a time on to my site then to post them to MTBR using the browser interface.

It was probably as you say, some sort of unavailability issue on my site. Daggone crappy host..

Nice build Term, I've always liked that bike. You don't happen to have another fork like that you'd part with would you? My Ute is screaming for a Ti fork.

Sorry HoSS - I wish I had enough ti forks to go 'round.

but yeah... I think a McMahon titanium rigid fork would look/work great on a Ute! :)

Rather than start a new thread, I'm bringing this one back up.













I've wanted one of these for years, with the goal of building it up with lighter parts. This is the Ignaz frame and fork that was on eBay last week. It arrived a couple of days ago and except for still needing a back brake, it's pretty much dialed-in.

I used a Problem Solvers "emergency" derailleur hanger to mount the Dura-Ace 7700 rear derailleur that I borrowed off my Breezer Lightning. With the 280-gram Kalloy Uno bars and a pair of 320-gram Slime tubes, it's currently sitting at two ounces over 23 pounds.

When you really put the power to it, the frame flexes noticeably, so it does not climb like my Klein Adroit Pro and Klein Attitude Race do. But the dog seems equally happy trotting along beside it, and that's what counts.



Great poser bike. Can't wait to put on some really tight jeans and ride it to Starbuck's.
