This is my first fixed project based of an 80's Jan Jassen Tour de France frame. The fork and stem ( nos Titan Avion) were copper plated. None of the parts are coated, so hopefully they will develop a nice patina over time. The quote on the down tube is to remind us all that our efforts (to create the most badass rides) will eventually end up in a pile of rust anyway. Oh well, such is life ;)
