To be honest I was in no small part informed by your Strawberry build to ponder ditching a couple of rather expensive restorations of cool 1950s British bikes in order to have a custom frame built... It's something I've wanted for a while! Still just a thought.

Again, more photos, please!
That is the toughest part of this, I probably could have put 10 other projects on the road if I hadn't done this but you only have a few chances to do this so it got done.

I could very well end up being sorry I dropped a ton on this with the mess we are in now. Fortunately its almost paid for and I had most of the parts well beforehand so it was a little less painful getting this done.

Lots of pics in the main thread that I added and I 'll work on getting more, weather looks better this week so we'll see.
