good things come to those who wait...
this frame has been a long time in the making. it has taken me nearly 2 years to find these lugs. my soft spot for the carlton 'capella' lugs first came long before that when my friend ady came home with an old carlton grass track racer. i now even have a spare set of these lugs and know where i can get plenty more if i ever need them, typical. i used 531 tubes for the classic feel and to compliment the 45+ year old lugs and decked it out with classic looking parts including a bunch of beautiful new dura-ace bits.
i have said it before and i will say it again, there is no better feeling than riding a bike that you built with your own hands, especially when you have waited so long to finally have it just the way you want!
