first 29er frame

So i could wind up with this. Its been a dream of mine since I was about 15 or 16 to build my own titanium frame. Im staring out on Italian steel. This frame here weighs 4.5 pounds. I am really exited to be full filling this childhood dream. I used to beg my dad to help me build one when I was a kid. We really didnt have access to a tig welder at the time. It rides amazing. I let my brother ride it the other day and i wasnt sure he was going to give it back. I powder coated it pearl white and laid down the lace panels in candy blue. theres nothing like the ride of steel.
