Lock the welder

Efab in 2006

This is a bike I built in the old days. It seems like 100 years ago! I built the entire frame from scratch. It doesn't have any bends in it (I didn't have a tube bender yet) other than the radiused side pieces, which a friend roll-bent for me. I remember taking it to a shop a few towns over and getting made fun of by all the old assholes that hung out there. They said the welds would break, but the only thing that broke was the engine they built for me! It shook so bad that I just lugged it constantly to keep the vibes down. It was still fun though.
