Progress....
looking good!
Where's yours?

In the process of cleaning the frame up before I mount the parts. I'll probably finish up in the next couple weeks--I'm wrapping up the school year (I'm a teacher) and have a newborn and toddler at home so I've been real busy. Will post pics soon!
Cool, I'm happy you got one! ;D
I love the frame already and haven't even ridden it yet!
PIX, PIX, PIX! Let's see it so far ..........;D I rode mine brakeless Friday and part of yesterday.....Just like I remember I adapted back to it great (which I was hoping). Now for the cable to have brakes, because I suck without them. All my ABP kids want it. BLING BLING!! ^_^

Here it is---cleaning up the chrome and smoothing out the dropouts where the standers were hacked off.

DONE!!!!
Rides Great with brakes. Incredible that this geometry is more comfy to me than the sharp HT angles of today, minutes to re-adapt to this. the rearend is kinda slower for now But................
 I LOVE THIS Frame....BTW I have been keeping track of funds spent for S&G's , Grand total of out of pocket cash including shipping on all parts bought is $577.30 that is the cheapest complete I have built. Pix tomorrow!!!

Just like I remember, but a bit lighter with the newer parts. I rode this all Summer and Love it, This was a well thought out and executed bike for all around ,But I only ride Flat on this one, I ain't pushing her in a Park.... I have plenty of other bikes strong enough for that.
 Ya diggin' those Chrome Cable housings?
