Seatcluster - the classic Herse shape

Handmade bb shell - started from 5 raw tubes!

Bent chainstays to accomodate a true 60mm fender!


Twin plate crown - handmade and wide

Upper headtube lug - check out the finished fillet on this handmade lug - and look at the crisp brazing!

Lower headtube lug - handmade, the photo makes distorts the perspective a bit - the tubing is NOT oval

Seatlug with mount for pulley - this is all handmade, and the binder is brazed onto the blank

The pulley - the brake cable will exit out the seatlug!  Machined by Mark

Seaststay attachment

Dropout finishing - Mark made this from scratch!
