Most of the parts are 2005 Floval (Fugi) for now..

This is 1 of 2 made, and the other one was cut in half..... :cry:



quote from Mike Devitt;

"This is the genuine, no nonsense, not created in the last few days, copy of something that someone else designed SE Quadangle 24" frame. This proto was designed and built around 1997, when the original shop was still going. The whole idea was to upgrade the whole line, from PK, to FLOVAL FLYER, add this new bike, a 24" QUAD, and the OM. Some got prototyped, shown in Europe at the EuroBike show in Germany, where they were a huge hit, and then forgotten about..too bad! Any how, this is the last of the bunch that I have. It would have included the built-in wheel adjuster mechanism/chain tensioner. The frame is 6061-T6. Note that the chain stay assembly is welded, not dip-brazed...we hadn't finished the process yet on that. Top tube dimension is 23" Center to Center. Seat post is 26.8mm. This is really my last SE frame, so there won't be any more...at least from me!"

:14: That is freaking awesome!!

I remember seeing that on the bay last winter... what a treasure.

I think it is pretty cool how you built it up with SE parts... like it would have been if it had gone production.

Were you ever able to determine if it had been heat treated?

Whatever...

5 Stars, two thumbs up and all that!

I don't know for sure, I did a quick test. Its seams to be around T-6.

Heat Treating is artificial ageing, and its being sitting around since 1997. Maybe it did it on its own.

I am not going to be too hard on it………………

The chain stays look the same as the ones used on the hydro-formed Alliants :18:

I have been trying to reply to this post for days.

Cool freakin bike. I like the way that you built it like it was factory. Cool to see that it ended up in your hands. Perfect home.

:break:
