Remember that I picked up a Yokota Yosemite Columbus OR tubed frame a while back, with the intention of painting it up in a topographic map style, (see the Yokota thread link there on the right to get up to speed), well I'm finally moving on with the frame alterations.
And these upper mounts. Such nice noodling for the derailleur cables and the rear brake, and then this rack junk tacked on to the stays with brass. Ugly.
Drive side, before the final clean up. Best to cut conservatively, as you can always take more off, but you can't put it back on! Well, not easily anyway...
Drive with a little cleanup underway.
Seat stays lose their tacky little rack mounts too. Again, before final cleanup, or during anyway.
