Skip , and his wife Vicky , were in Austin , specifically South Austin ( always a rumor about how South Austin may suddenly decide to succeed . . . ) .

Now they are in Wimberly , just up into "The Hill Country" , not too far away from Austin .

In the early-to-middle 1980's , I was lucky enough to able to "oooh and ahhh" over some of Skips best work . I'm still not over getting to play with the World Land Speed Record bicycle .

He was best known for trying to satisfy the most demanding demands of the most demanding customers . If they wanted the World's tightest clearances , he tried to comply .

Did quite a few steel frames with steel aero tubing . Those very special seat-posts were sold , one single seat-post per set of tubing . For a while , those delicate aero posts , for the steel aero tubing , were a precious commodity .

And the pearlescent paint !!

Skip finally had to make a rule that he would only do his fanciest paint jobs on frames he had made himself . No pearlescents on non-Hujsak frame sets !
