  Congratulations Bruce, that is a spectacular frame!

Is there a sleeve in the seat lug, or is that just the way you profiled t he top edge of the seat lug?  The more I look at it, the more I think it' s not a sleeve...which would make that a pretty incredible bit of work.

BTW, this is the photo that shows the seat lug (thanks Dale):

You know, you are right! Sure it has modern parts but my apologies, I spoke too quickly on that call. It is a hard-to-pigeonhole bike but one we should be able to talk about here...

Lugs, ti, decidedly vintage appeal, a true Neo-Classic!?

FWIW, I thought that bike was the finest on display at this year's NAHBS. Sure the Naked bike was over the top, but this approach to titanium constru ction was so unique and clever, and just too subtle and complicated for the judge s to 'get it'. Then there was the 'how-did-he-do-it' stem,? the monkey vomit green (which I liked!) and damn near perfect execution...It su rely got my vote.

""""Bruce Gordon had some cool stuff right beside Brian's and I dorked out and didn't pics of his bikes. He did have that amazing but off topic Ti bike from the NAHBS. Pics start here: http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Events/NAHBS/G/gordon_ti_1.html Dale Brown Greensboro, North Carolina? USA""""

Why is this bike "Off Topic"????
