After the first lap then huh?

I rode the whole 12hrs on it, I think there is something wrong with me.

Here is my latest build - a gun metalled Tarini Tange 2 frame... This is my current fav bike in the world. I ended up putting beeswax over the gun metal finish - works amazingly well IMO

Image
The bars are Velo Orange Porteurs from Velo Ideale

Image
The seat is a very old and fucked Lycette, super comfy tho

Image
Boot leather grips, laced with copper wire

Image
It is a bit hard too see but the finish shows the brazing up sweet as

This is my current range of functional bikes, my longbike is mostly in bits awaiting significant downgrades...

Funnily enough we had that exact discussion (while admiring the lush beast) at work today and I had resolved to plug them with something.

Tassles?

It is a L'Ésprit - it is a really nice frame.... I built that up for my wife. I had the frame powdercoated, and it is running a Sram P5 hub on 700c rims. Rides very nicely..

I have another one of those frames that I am putting together with all the normal period running gear, probably going to flick that off on TM.

snap, just building up a Tarini mixte for my wife, and she wants it painted almost the same shade of blue ! Really like the shape of these old frames especially with lugs. I have purchased some moustache bars and inverse levers and going to use a 1x5 drive train with the original rear der . It came with 27" alloy wheels which are in good condition so will keep then.

Sounds a treat, that powder blue just seems to lift those frames for some reason... chuck up a pic when you are done, I would be interested to see how the moustache bars look. The second mixte I have now has slightly shortened cruiser bars, which looks better than it sounds...
