    New addition to the family

    Set up as SS currently but will be changed to Fixed as soon as I get a cog.

    Beautiful bike. Isn't that a Stronglight crank ? Love the star.

    Well all I had laying around was a 21 BMX freewheel. The Stronglight crankset came with a 50 tooth large ring. This gives me about 63 inches and at 90 rpms will give me almost 18 MPH of I figure correctly. 27inch wheels with 25mm tires.

    Stronglight crankset. I need to polish or up more. Back in the day there was a lot of art in bikes. A very nice example here. I'm guessing late 60 to early 70...
