What filler did you use on the stainless bits- 50n, 45%, 50% or some other stuff? Looks like a good match. I think I like the scotchbrite finish better than polished. Nice piece.

Beautiful. Everything is so well done. That, and I'd love to ride the hell out of that bike.

What a jewel! I like everything about the way that bike looks but I really love that fork and stem. The Pecenti crown really blends well with your lugs on the stem........:thumbsup:
You can tell just by looking at it that it would be a joy to ride........NICE WORK

I only see one problem... Gonna be hard to find a riding partner. No one is going to want to ride their OCLV Trek next to that gem! :)

Nice work!

No worries, I don't hang out with THOSE people.

Thanks to everybody for all the nice compliments.

That's pretty swanky Joel.

Did you consider 'incorporating' the rear portion of the top S&S into the top lug somehow?

And what was the rationale behind the sleeved stainless seatstays?

The coupler is mitered so it meets the ST lug on the top and both sides--this was actually the inpiration for the whole bike. The lower coupler does this too, but the BB isn't stainless.

The SS are segmented because I don't like the way a painted SS has to be masked where it meets the ST lug.

Thanks, Joel

Nice one! :thumbsup:

Refreshing to see non polished lugs, too I might add.
