Frame #1 pictures

The pictures on the left are post braze, pre-finish and the ones on the right are finished ready to paint.

The lower head lug, I included another picture later with the STI guides brazed on.

The seat lug, a little rough after brazing, but cleaned up nice. Henrik wanted the fastback style seat stay attachment, reminded me of my Serotta days.

Here's the real test, is it straight? It needed a little gentle persuasion, but came around just fine.

Here's the super accurate rear end alignment, worked just like I'd hoped. Just check the drive side dropout with the indicator then check the spacing with a caliper.

That's EC (Ellis Cycles) 08, for 2008 and frame #001. Also a cool shot of the dropouts.

Finally, the head tube is faced and the STI guides brazed on.
