Which you now have the opportunity to explore with Karlos.
And you will see how easy it is to 'fake' a frame n forks.
Or, like all the GTHO Falcon drivers out there, be happy you have realistic tribute to your desire.

Karl..
I wish you all the best, I learnt the art of frame building from a man that would chase customers out of his shop if they talked !! BAN ME NOW FOR SWEARING !!, n would make me sweat out a joint and do it again if the aesthetic's where not up to his eye.
But that is probably why people look for his frames now.
Just beware the 'parts changers' for as you know, they build bikes.

Oh go on, tell us the name of this chap who mentored you was, or maybe his brand/shop. Don't be shy...inquiring minds and all that...

Despite the rubbish appearing in this thread, I for one have an interest in hand built antipodean road frames and look forward to seeing pics of yours.

Agree with the LG . Be good if the OP reappeared with his story on the frame and pictures.

A great way to approach life :) . I love hearing from those who actually built frames, one of these days I will get around to making some frames of my own. Just not TIG welded, I can handle the oxy tolerably but TIG I never got the hang of :) .

Building a cycle frame is not hard, it is just a process. I agree tig welded frames are not attractive unless it is titanium. Have made 2 butt brazed frames with large welds, this takes a lot of post brazing filing but the finish is a work of art.
