Paint delays and Part 2 of How I build a bike
Folks, due to the extreme humidity and heat this past week, we have had some paint delays. The decals tend to bubble and the clear has issues of its own in this kind of weather. The weather is going to be more mild this week and painting will be complete on Jim’s and Francis’s framesets.
Last time, we left off with a completely machined tubeset, except for the seat stays. Next, we set up the jig and mock up the tubes to check all of the fits. Here is the frame in the jig with lugs installed.
