Mike Celmins is (was) from Santa Barbara, CA. A framebuilder extraordinaire, and a really nice guy. Former husband to one of the greatest cycling jersey makers ever, Emily K. (Berup). We still have a couple of her masterpiece creations, complete with the little turtle applique' sewed on.
BUY THE BIKE, PAULIE!!!! You'll love it.

A friend of mine just walked in with a nice track (?) bike. Horizontal d.o.'s, brake bridge, set up as a fixie (just my size!), nice red paint job, nice pointed lugs, appears to be in our period. Anybody ever heard of this marque?
