From 2010 to 2013 I made a living building custom bicycles. You can read about it HERE, and I've included some pictures of the fancier ones. Everything pictured was designed by me and built by the Bilenky Cycle Works team.
I designed these lugs for the 2010 North American Handbuilt Bicycle Show. They won first place!
Really high end bikes get a ton of sketches to make sure every detail comes out right.
Fancy custom stem. Just 'cause.
This bike is for a marine biologist. Fish lugs, fish detail, and bendy tubes. Because fish need bicycles.
I sang 'Manta Ray' by the Pixies while i made this. 'My manta ray's.... ALL RIGHT!'
Flippers for DAYS
I built this bike for myself. It rides like a rocket ship. It's stainless steel and I love it so much I can't even think about it. I sunk several weeks paychecks into the components AND IT WAS WORTH IT.
THAT IS NOT SHARPIE. That is sign painter paint.

Just some Rene Herse style lugs for a Swedish Randonneur bike.
These are for an Ephgrave style track frame. More pictures coming, I really went nuts with the fork tangs. Photo Credit: Bicycle Quarterly
This is for a tandem. I only have to cut five more sets!
