Made-to-measure bicycle frames
Click on small images to see larger views.                              Updated 9.5.2016

    I have made 31 frames thus far; each frame has been different and had it's own "personality".  Unfortunately running cycles de ORO has left me with too little time to pursue this craft. Any owners of 'DB' bikes who read this, please send pictures of your bikes so I can include it here.
