It’s rare to see a bare, unbuilt frame here on Cycle EXIF. In fact, this is the first, but only because anything to do with Bernard Hinault’s La Vie Claire team gets a special look in around here, especially when it’s a frame by Tom Donhou with custom Mondrian paint.

Tom Donhou is producing some of the smoothest fillet brazed frames to come out of the United Kingdom in recent times and that is exactly what is underneath this exceptional paint work, which he also executes in-house, to offer a complete custom frame building service.

Bernard Hinault was a hero to many for his tenacious personality, including a recent Donhou client. Tom built him a racing frame from Columbus XCr and painted in the Mondrian-inspired livery of the La Vie Claire team, complete with the dates of Hinault’s Tour de France wins.

    Wonderful execution! That frame screams class. Why the dropout eyelets?

    • HPA3

      Why not?

  • Gorgeous, but why decapitated in the pictures? Would have been nice to show the seat clamp arrangement…

  • jeremynorth

    Fabulous paint job.

    I’m guessing the seat clamp is connected to whatever is holding the frame, hence it is being cropped to keep it out of the pictures

  • DANL

    love the nod towards De Stijl art.

    Good enough to be hung in an art gallery.
