Constructed with Nova Cycles Road tubing and 4130 Chromoly tubing.

This was my first bike constructed with fabricated lugs, including  a one-piece head tube sleeve, which I have continued to produce in variation since. I built this bike for a good friend emulating one of his favorite bikes, a vintage Falcon, with detailed lugs and a wrap-over seat stay bridge running across the seat post clamp.  Designed and built with incredibly tight geometry, including my signature curved seat tube, this bike is lean and mean, ready for the velodrome or NYC streets. The frame lugs and fork crown were embelished with heart shaped windows thoughout.  I included manually machined brass handle bar caps as well to compliment the blackened and lacquered finish that leaves the brass lug lining exposed.
