Black and red

Here’s some pictures of a recent frame. It’s built with Pacenti bb shell, Sachs lugs and crown. The drop out faces are nickel plated. This frame will be built up as a single speed but the customer wanted provisions for gears. So the rear drops are a Campagnolo short slot copy. Photographing black bikes is tricky. Every little speck of dust or fingerprint shows. The graphics are painted on with a stencil. Normally they’re decals. I prefer the decals but this looks good too.
