New lugged steel... classic?PMC

I just built up this fully lugged frame and fork. Not sure if it qualifies as classic, but the frame design sure does. I met up with the builder at his house a week ago last Sunday and had to have it. It's the last one he built and was told it's number 57.

I've got around 200 miles on it and absolutely love it. It's built with a Shimano mix which consisted of what I had laying around to get it up and running. The total weight is around 21.5 lbs.
Nice, but...Ahimsa

...needs more chrome or shiny bits. Maybe lose the black stem and post.

I'm being hyper critical here, it is a very nice looking bike.


Great name must be a great bike....nmDjudd
