Man you are not kidding. I have an old Tommasini road bike that I have been riding for years. Cant' imagine I would ever part with it- way too beautiful. However, those Oswald road bikes are just fantastic. I think I will be making a trip up to Mansfield...
Peter Dreesens (in Spring Mount) recently finished building this beauty for me:
Can't recommend working with him enough. He only does lugged frames, but prices were a lot better than some of the others in the area. While we were waiting for my frame to get back from the painter he built a really cool 650b singlespeed that has me already thinking about the next bike I "need"
To back up the guys above ref. Peter Dreesens. I have 2 of his bikes, a road and track. Both are awesome in every respect. He is very reasonable on price and his work is the real deal. He's been riding and racing many decades in the eastern PA area. Great guy to work with. I haven't talked to him in about 2 years but if I wanted another steel/lugged I'd give him a call.
