HERE IS A BIKE THAT ORLANDO OLMO HAD BUILT BY GRANDPA IN THE 1980s,
This is my Cuevas framed bike. The frame was crafted by Mr. Cuevas in 1981 for me. I choose all the components and built it all up. Even laced up two sets of rims with what was at that time the first set of aero rims. The bike is Reynolds 531 and painted in a fade from silver to black. I had the privilege of being there five of the six days it took to build the frame. Mr. Cuevas worked alone in his little sho...p and I just sat there and watched him do his magic. All hand filing and fitting. There are so many amazing things about his way of building but having it all done by eye, then watching him toss a frame on table to check the frame for alignment, do his measuring and have the frame come off with absolutely no need for adjustment is incredible. The seat cluster is a particular work of art. I have no idea if all he did was just a collection of what he learned from others or just straight out of his head. The sum of all the details makes for any of his frames to be a story all to themselves.
