Lately I have been seriously looking into the frame building idea and how much money it is going to take. Looks pretty expensive and very involved. Hopefully I can save some money up and put my dream into motion in the next year or two. I have been looking at a lot of classic builders for ideas and designs and have just been drooling over some Rene Herse bicycles. Especially the early porteur bikes. Such a simple design yet so stylish and elegant. Check some of them out....
