    Any Clydes looking for a SS steel frame

    Financial problems are forcing me to sell a BRAND NEW, never assembled Vulture frame. Email me if you are interested. This frame was built for a big boy!!

    This Vulture wouldn't happen to be the two top-tube variety would it?

    Send me an email per my request above and I will send you several pictures and specs on the frame. I'm embarrassed to say that since this site has changed, I don't know how to post a picture.

    The "upload photos" link at the top of every page is too subtle, or what? It's even the same applet and the same url as it was before. Then copy/paste the URL of the picture into this line:

    <img src="URL">

    Couldn't be easier unless we came over and did it for you and brought beer.

    even easier if you just use the "Upload Images" button on bottom-left of the new post screen.

    where's MY beer?

    Here are some specs and another pic.

    Here are the specs that Wade from Vulture sent me. I am cutting and pasting from his email, so don't be too confussed from the point of view.

    Most of what I did to make it stronger was to use thicker wall tubing
    and larger diameters. Obviously I also added the extra top tube. The seat
    tube is extra thick for the top 6 inches and the chainstays are from a
    tandem manufacturer. I designed a new and as of yet completely uinque seat
    stay wishbone, hope you like it. Chainstays are 17in. Head tube and seat
    tube angle are 71 degrees parallel effective top tube is 25. You will need
    a 1.25" 31.8mm seat tube collar and a 28.6mm seat post.

    I use co-motion eccentrics and
    shells and the OD of the eccentric is 53.8mm or 2.1190".

    Here are the pictures of the frame.

    Price: $500 and I'll throw in a brand new (never out of the box) pair of Stainless Egg Beaters.

    Thanks for your interest!

    I am dying here...

    How heavy are you that this bike is setup for a "big boy"? The TT length is .25" shorter than my current rig, but I'm getting older and the longer CT dimension makes up the wheelbase. What's that thing weigh?

    I weigh over 275. I think the frame is 11lbs.
