Looks good. Who made the frame?

Busaste, Real nice frame. I know how you feel about the small frame. My aerospace GP is 21 1/2" and is now impossible to ride as I get older. Is your's 23 1/2?? It would be tempting to do a switchover if my wife wouldn't kill me. The basement is getting very crowded and no one wants to be exiled to the shed!
One day I've got find the right sprint tri race to show up at with one of my Viscounts and just go retro!
I've got to figure out the right format on Zazzle to be able to do shirts with the solid white lettering one of these days. Anyone who wants to design their own should go to the site and try it out. Its pretty cool.

The key components are the two collets - 10mm and 17mm. These are beautifully made devices by Trident Tools (USA).
I just regestered as a member specifically for the purpose of contacting you. I could sure use a tool set like the one you display for removing viscount sealed bearings. Were all of these costom made for you by Trident Tools, or do they have part numbers? Can they be made with off the shelf materials?
I appreciate your offer to remove my bearings for free, but I would guess you are a long way away from Missoula Montana. Also, in storage, in a small garage, in a small village in the south of France, lies a viscount in desparate need of BB replacement. Only way to get that one done is to do it myself.
Any information would be helpful..........thanks.
