Q: Atmo, Doctor, what does a duck's aflac have to do with aamco?   

A: "chicken's feet" A: "charm and mojo"

This post is written in crypto-code, as my mulitple-choice A's are actual Ken Denny quotes, sent off-list to me aproximately a semi-decade ago, similarly regarding "authenticity."

Know what? Methinks I'd like to build a frame, a lugged frame, and finish-file it with fine-grade files only. That is to say, no emory cloth would touch it. That'd be the experiment. I'd "Chuck Schmidt" a proper decal for it though, for sure, to signify the omission of cloth. Heck, I'd stack the decals totemic-style, for example: atop the Henry James, atop the Tru-Temper, atop the painter's decal, etc. I bet Curt Goodrich would be game for this experiment too. He actually has a frameshop. I do not.
