Hi List Members..

I lurk here a lot, I enjoy the reading (and the picture) but posted only twice. I told you that I have ordered a custom bike, and although it is not a real classic (i.e. old), it is "retro" and comes close to being a classic.

Please ignore the modern components and enjoy the pictures...

Mr. Albert Eisentraut , ahhhhh yes , I remember when we ALL just KNEW that he was making the absolute finest bicycle frames made in North America . . .

We didn't realize how many other folks there were , or were about to be , building beautiful bicycles out there . . .

These days I know much better than to try to say anyone is THE best . . .

But that is still a big heavy name to drop in a conversation . . .

Congratulations !
