Independent Fabrications showed off a spectacular mixte at the North American Handbuilt Bike Show. It was built for company owner Gary Smith's wife Toni. Inspired by the cafe racer movement in motorbikes, this Barracuda Purple and black checkerboard beauty features an 8 speed internal hub, Phil-centric BB, a carbon and aluminum disk brake fork, Paul racer brakes in the rear, a dynamo powered headlight, and of course, a custom painted stainless steel coffee tumbler. Last but not least they put on a set of our chrome-plated Condorina "cafe racer" bars. (Photos by John Prolly and IF Blog)
We have to agree that speccing our Condorina Bar was a smart move.
