    My new McClung

    So since throwing down my deposit back in May and waiting patiently for Don McClung #49 to come to life it has finally begun...

    In another 3-5 weeks it should be ready to go to Spectrum and then the trail hopefully before the snow gets to deep! I am off to see if Shelman has started my wheels. I am trying to document as much of the build as I can and will post photos as they come up.

    Cheers, P.T.

    Wow. I knew Don was old-school, but brazing parts by heating them with wood stove is... Neanderthal!

    Bonus points for the 'Stone Light empties!

    I will try to get some updated photos this weekend, I've been working overtime to pay for this so I haven't had a chance to take photos for a bit... If you have a chance to visit Salida anytime soon you should, the trails are in great shape and the Aspens are going off!

    I love that old motorbike style he uses. Does he have a website? How much do they cost? ("If you have to ask . . ." is true in this case)

    A quick update My Fork is mostly done and Don is started on the main triangle...



    Also I stopped by Sub Culture Cyclery and Jason laced up my wheel set.









    So day after tomorrow we are of to Utah for a quick white rim trip and I am hoping when I return I can get a few photos of the frame starting to come together...

    Cheers

    It is almost looking like a bicycle now!



    The chain stays are bent and ready for the dropouts...





    So maybe this week the whole diamond will come together!

    Cheers,

    I'm in love with this thread, and maybe Don McClung a little, too.

    I love the old Keystone beer can crunched up in the corner of the first picture. Its the sign of a true master craftsman. These bikes are amazing..... I would love to own one of these bad boys.

    Congrats on your new rig.

    Mock-up a bit more polishing and then off to the springs for color...





    That maybe it for the pictures for a few weeks until it comes back all zinc yellow and oyster white ...

    That should be a pretty classy color combo for sure. Make sure to get it posted up when you finally get it. I hate it when these awesome build threads die...
