Handmade Bicycle Show: Image Dump Part II

Red on red.

Rapha's jersey commemorating Hampsten's exploits on the Gavia.

Cool right down to the silk number. And if you have to ask how much ...

Pacenti fork crowns.

Crisp lug work from Steve Rex, a man better known for his fillet brazing.

Steve with daughter Sadie.

Spectrum Powder Works manages things in powder coating that look difficult even in paint.

Incredible to think you can have this much beauty and durability for the ages.

This matte finish was a stunner.

thanks for the pictures. I love all the handmade stuff. Great to see everybody rolling out their finest.
Spectrum did the paint on my Wily and I love it, amazing looking stuff.

...i've managed, in my infinite wisdom, to miss every one of the hand built shows, but the photos lead me to believe they're way more interesting than inter-bike...

Freddy,
Great pictures to satisfy bike lusts.

Power Coating, wow never knew they did that on bicycles. I wonder if its heavier than liquid application? It looks really sweet.

you know... i know so little about so many things.. but the more i know.. the little bits of insight that start to pile up into kind of knowing little things...
well... the more i know the more astonished i am by those richard sachs bikes.
i just see more and more in them as i clue in...
so much so that they seem to me to be the most fully realized bike one can get. its kind of intense.
