Coffee Bike #17 - Yipsan randonneur

Renold is a friend and frame builder.  He emailed me a few weeks before this post and suggested that I try out one of his custom bikes for a race I'm doing this summer.  So to show my appreciation just for being thought of in that situation, I made him this.  This is larger then most of the coffee bikes I do.  I used a coffee mug instead of a Styrofoam cup.  It allowed me to get a bit more detail and help with adding color.  It's hard to portray a certain color when the tubing is just a thin line.

I really like the way it turned out.  The original now resides with him.  Enjoy Renold!
