Sean Walling – Artists and Artisans of Petaluma

Sean is Soulcraft Bikes. Soulcraft Bikes make custom bike frames. Sean uses his years of study and fabrication to bring the manufacturing of bikes to an artistic level. Each frame starts with a detailed drawing with the customers needs and measurements taken into account. Sean carefully selects the best steels and then cuts and assembles the pieces. Take a look at the wonderful movie by Michael Evans of Sean working on a frame at the Soulcraft website. We had a wonderful morning together talking about the history of bikes, the metals used, the assembly processes, designs, fads, construction methods and on and on. Sean is a wealth of knowledge and eager to share it.
