"Jim,

I couldn't open your link but I do remember a stunning frame that Peter made that was in Bicycling magazine in the early 80's (I think). The lug pattern extended down the tubes in a leaf and vine configuration. It was pretty spectacular. Perhaps someone knows the year and date of that article. That frame must be a candidate for best American frame from that era."

Doug, there's a Bicycle Guide "Hot Tubes" article on Peter Ouellette that features this frame (or one matching your description).

Very cool stuff! I wonder what the charge was for this sort of detail work? I love the look of this style, but can't imagine paying for it and then riding the bike hard. (but I do have a Hetchins Magnum Opus....)
