Framebuilding update: Fitting and brazing the brake bridge

It's been a busy three weeks at school, so I am behind in nearly everything, including keeping up with this blog. So as an update, instead of a wordy explanation of what I've been up to and where I am in the project, here is a sequence of photos showing the steps to fitting and brazing the rear brake bridge:

I've also been too busy to do much riding, but tomorrow looks like it will be a pretty autumn day, so maybe I'll get out and wheel around a little. If I do, it will slow the work on the frame down a bit, but that's OK; part of the pleasure is working without a deadline.
