Built by Don for another Don…simply beautiful frame and fork. Amazing that Don McClung never put his own decals on his bikes. This is one builder that should be much better known, eh?! Before the others, his bikes were given bent seat tubes to allow for super-short chainstays on his 29ers (16″ stays…). He uses classic styling from the Schwinn Excelsior, and uses just hand tools to make tese simply beautifully fillet brazed frames in his one-man shop. I hear he is still kicking ass on a singlespeed somewhere in the mountains surrounding Salida, CO.
Wish I had better pics but here are some anyways…
