Don't EVER forget to check out this rack of righteousness and rogues here with in the hatch; the home of Crown + Thieves, the ultimate vinous playground of our delightfully degenerate winemaking team, @jpcokanagan. The hatch, more than just a hatch. It's family or some nonsense like that. Also, Beaver Rub.
Before and after // pre-plate pre-game. These are two of the same crowns that are investment castings. I cut the inner tangs into wing shapes, and reshaped the outer windows to be hearts. Steerer and blades are silver brazed into place. The crown is buffed down from files, then 120-480 grit abrasives, then green buffing compound and a medium density wheel. My plater will give it another round of polishing before nickel plating. There are reasons why nice things take time and cost money. #framebuilding#4130society#wingedvictory#anyasfirstnicebikeever#bicycle#fork#crown
