Brazing a Bicycle Frame

I love bicycles and I took a course to learn how to braze a steel frame together. Most of custom bicycle making is the filing of the mitres to allow tubes to fit snugly together. I learnt another CAD tool - BikeCAD which allowed me to design a frame bespoke to my needs and print out templates for the mitres.

After filing all the tubes, the frame can be positioned using a jig.
