    i'm gonna be going through Seattle for Texas4000. i plan on visiting Sacha and -hopefully- talking about a frame. right now the wait time is a year, at least, for one of his frames. but god, they are so beautiful. i buddy of mine has 3 custom forks from Vanilla. even those are hot.

    HollyWood.... Thanks.... I think.....

    You just poured a gallon of gas on a fire of passion that can not be quenched. This my friends is one of the finest builders I have ever seen.

    Choices to be made..... PBJ's for a year or Vanilla.....?

    Phone call might go out soon and hopefully name will be added to the year long list.

    Not just another bike sir.....

    HW, thanks for that link, that was the first bike that popped into my head when I saw the V in the dropouts of the first pic.
