Lugs and Fillets and Mexican Blankets

I built this one quite a (relatively) long while ago and sorta forgot about it while it was off for paint.  Looking at the fillets motivates me to bust out the brazing torch and let the welder rest for a couple days.  It also reminds me that a nice custom steel fork will always be hotter than an off-the-shelf carbon job.

They say that white is the hardest color for a builder of fillet bikes to pull off.  I think I got away with it, if only by the skin of my teeth.
