Yes, Rob was definitely the builder. He really did name the bicycles after the painter, Yves Tanguy, whose work he admired. For whatever it's worth, he started seriously working on bicycles in Ann Arbor, Michigan, so it's also conceivable that a couple of you folks met him there. (This would have been during the early '70s.)

Anyway, he's no longer in the frame building business and no longer located in Massachussetts.
