This is my 650b Rivendell A. Homer Hilsen.

Custom Painted Joel Green w/Cream Filling and built up by me.

I built it up about 11 months ago and it now has 2k trouble free beautiful miles on it. This one replaced my black and cream Atlantis (Cyclofiend #509)

It's my full time commuter. As with my Atlantis, it rides like a dream and can do just about anything.
