Ave made this frame around 5 years ago, and when Marc saw this lugged frame, he quickly grabbed it. He actually started building this from scratch. This was originally a “chop suey” built from parts Marc hunted in Fixed Swap MFG. Well because back then, parts were so hard to find, either you order from abroad or go to Tryon or be patient at Fixed Swap. But now, this has evolved into a supreme NJS build. All the parts compliment each other, making it a unique and slick steed. I will never get tired admiring this bike. Consider this a timeless classic! Good job Marc!
