Tucson on the morning of Thanksgiving Day (hey, no cars...)
America the bountiful. Today is the fourth Thursday in November which makes it Thanksgiving Day in the United States. A true harvest festival with a glorious celebration of food and companionship at the dinner table. Dave was kind enough to invite me to a Thanksgiving dinner and my first taste of American-Jewish hospitality. Wonderful. What more does one need?
Well, may be a nice bike would further nourish the soul.
So on to today's endeavours. We started up with paint selection and hand-mixing the various components (dyes mixed into a clear base). I've decided on a traditional scheme with an ivory base colour and a blue HT and DT panel. Yellow pinstripes strategically placed complete the look.
In the meantime Dave sets up the frame jig and then tacks the frame before checking alignment.
