Busy Busy Busy

04 May

Another busy month has just slipped by. Finally got to do some work on Pat’s antique GOUVERNER spoke threading machine. Made in Paris this tool is so old that it cuts the threads rather than rolling them. No Pat, if you are reading this its not finished yet.

Steve Bolto dropped by with a frame that needed checking and aligning before L’Eroica Japan. Good luck on the ride Steve.

Davide brought over his Paletti cyclo cross frame that was in need of a new derailleur hanger. Paletti is another widely unknown framebuilder from Italy that harks back to the days of beautiful steel and lugged frames
