Looks stunning! Even though i'm not a fan of polished parts.

Excellent...I always wanted to build my own frame, especially lugged steel...

I really love how this one turned out, even though my personal preference would have been for the frame being left "raw" with the welds cleaned up and smoothed but not painted, only lightly clearcoated.

Your choice of blue tones works really well, and your choice of components create a solid build. I especially like the choice of extending the light blue tone used at the lugs to extend further down the seat stays. Nice touch there!

Very nice! Like the silver parts. Don't see that very often anymore.
