    In the 7 years of the RRBBO this is the first time this frame has been used. Can't wait for updates!

    How big is this frame? I can't get a real size reference.

    Looks like fun though, I love cafe racers.

    I always wondered if fiberglass resin would eat those floral blocks, I guess you put plastic wrap over it before you started glassing.
