Rafael's Frame Part #2

Some more detail photos of Rafael's frame, the head lugs are Llewellyn slant six lugs that I added the circular cutouts to. You can also see the internal brake routing and my handmade down tube cable stops.

The seat lug is also carved a bit to match and Rafael requested the fastback style seat stays.

A little shot of the brake bridge, it's milled out on the under side for less weight, maybe a couple grams, but it looks cool.

The Ellis dropouts, I left the surface under the chain stay a little raised rather than blending it into the chain stay. I finished this into a point and had Jason leave it unpainted so that it won't be chipped when the wheel hits this surface during wheel changes.

Rafael has promised photos of the completed bike, I'm looking forward to seeing it finished!
