And a bit of handmade steel bling…a handbuilt masterpiece by John Caletti from Santa Cruz.
John has been kind enough to provide a couple of photos:

I’m cannibalising some parts from my old Moots but have bought a few bits here and there. The paint is still to be finalised but a painting by Clyfford Styll has provided the inspiration.
It will be a shy, retiring type of bike once built. More pics to come!
