Forrest's new lugged road racing bike is simply gorgeous. Light, agile, stiff, supple, classic, and modern. Joe Bell outdid himself executing Forrest's awesome paint design. This bike is timeless.
Thanks so much Forrest and enjoy! source page

I have only one bike, a 1988 Holland in Reynolds 653 with some custom features, and it's going in to Joe Bell for its 4th paint job (not counting painting a new fork in 2003) as soon as he has an opening. Yes, I crash a lot. Joe's attention to detail (those tiny contrasting color accents in the lug windows!) is beyond reproach. When our first experiment with a pink pearl coat over blue to get an electric blue effect didn't work, he repainted it for free without a blink. He went outside the box to non-Imron and found a genuine Ferrari Red for it on the last repaint.
