    Dekerf made some absolutely forgeous steel softails for awhile (Dekerf Team ST) but I did not seen any on their current site. I had once a a little while back in 2001-2, but it didn't fir so I sold it. I actually regret it - it was one of the first frames the ever sent out in the "guiness" color. Gorgeous steelwork though, might fit your bill if you can find one.

    I think my builder search may be over. Walt said he can do it!

    REALLY?? I thought that Walt was not a big fan of the softtail design. Peruse the Framebuilder forum and I am pretty sure there is a post about softtails and Walt is not Pro softtail.

    Good though. It should be very good and without the unknown waiting period of a Curtlo (I am the proud owner of a spot somewhere on Curtlo's list).

    Castellano Zorro. Guy is a mad genius with designs way ahead of the curve. Maybe a little more squish than you are looking for, but you've gotta appreciate the options it provides and the simplicity.

    Nothing against Waltworks, but I'd go Curtlo for a steel softail.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Oh yeah, I should have checked your link. I was thinking it was the Fango and I thought I remember them being aluminum. I stand corrected!

    That's a hard tail. No? I'm wanting something built along the lines of a Salsa Dos Niner.

    KHS previously made a SS softtail - - maybe 2004ish? Blue frame and came with a rigid fork stock. Bike was like $450 out the door.
