The other day a gentleman named Leo visited the shop. He asked a few questions about building a frame that he made many years ago. He built the frame at one of the first UBI frame brazing classes under the instruction of frame-builder-extraordinaire Albert Eisentraut. As Leo was brazing the pictured frame Mr. Eisentraut snuck up behind him and exclaimed “Too much silver, grasshopper” hence the phrase on the top tube. This is one of two frames that Leo made and the craftsmanship is great. I guess he had a good instructor šŸ™‚
