Bob's polo frame getting underway

Bob win the most recent Tall-o-ween bicycle race. His prize was a custom Old Field Cycles frame. Bob went ahead and decided on a gig welded polo frame and added a fork to the deal. Here are done shots taken on my phone of his split plate crown fork and the the mitering of the front triangle underway. I used thick straight Gage tubing for his head tube so I turned down the center section a bit on the lathe. The fork is a split plate design which I have built a number of and its one of my favorite designs.
