Ian Sutton's gorgeous black-on-black custom cycle

Icarus Frames is the brainchild of Ian Sutton, a custom bike builder based in Boston. Trained by Koichi Yamaguchi, Sutton has grown his wings and started building his own bikes — mostly singles but also road, cross and touring bikes at his studio in Somerville, Massachusetts. Sutton’s latest creation is the Stealth Track, a one-off single speed bike built for a client in the Ukraine, and boy is it a headturner. Like most of his bicycles, the Stealth Track’s frame is fillet brazed as it gives Sutton the ability to build with any tube size or shape and at any angle, with a more polished look than welded frames. The bike features a liquid black paintjob with off-black lettering, very subtle and yet still deadly nice, with touches of gold on the rear dropouts. Don’t fly too close to the sun, Sutton, you’re making us all envious…
