Very cool photos.......!

Mike made many of our frames, his name is on my frame card, and is old Fort Worth.....my tale is at http://www.flickr.com/photos/paulmos...7623491141518/

Hope everyone is well, your seat tube is dry and you are riding!

You got that right Tony!

If memory serves, those were taken during a Fat City dealer party - probably 1993 after we finally got Linden St up and running full steam. The three shots of the "welding demo" are of me welding a titanium frame and showing our visitors all of the steps needed to properly execute TI welding. I remember the party but don't really remember that shirt! LOL

We even made a "farthest traveler" award which was a pen/pencil holder made from a discarded downtube sleeve and a piece of plate. I bead-blasted the sleeve and then welded it to the plate without creating any heat tint. It looked pretty cool when it was done and I believe some guys from Kentucky got it.

Great pics - good to see Mike again. I miss him

Thanks for the post
Scott

Great photos--thanks for passing them along!

Really cool paint jobs and the shot with all the welded frames is pretty awesome.
