This is the second frame I have built for Terry ,
This time round we went for a lovely Columbas life tubed Phil woods eccentric BB single speed frame. In the past I have used 45% silver to fillet braze the aero tubes to minimize heat distortion on the tubes as you have very little play in the way of cold setting with the life tube sets but this time I chose to use mag bronze and a very careful tacking and welding sequence she came out perfect . Terry chose the color scheme for the frame and with all the rest of the components done in black this will be a very striking bike . Hope you Enjoy her Terry .

Well I just got back from the first Australian custom bike show , and what a weekend it was . There was an amazing selection of beautiful bikes and accessories on display from all the builders in oz but the best part had to be that all the builders where in one room ( to my understanding it the first time it’s happened over here ) this gave punters the opportunity to put a face to the people they had heard about or been following and to see up close the workmanship on display , and from a builders perspective it was fantastic to see what others are producing and through around ideas on what people use and why . All in all it was an amazing event and may thanks go to Andy from fyxomatosis for organizing the event , and I’m already working on ideas for next years show . Hope to see you there .
