    Frankenbike in progress- Trek Antelope

    Here is my work in progress. It's an 80's Trek Mtn frame that I'm converting to a single speed....

    The rear wheel is being laced this weekend...

    I'm going to use canti-brakes.

    Bars are Soma Sparrow. Levers are Tetkro.

    Saddle is Brooks B17.

    I'm still undecided on cranks. It will probably be no name from the parts bin..

    Eventually I'd like to add a 6 pack rack in front...

    Are the rims gold or is it just the picture?

    Look like gold to me. I have a similar set, the rims are either Araya or Ukai and the hubs are ASC I believe. They were pretty common on Ross mtbs in the 80s.

    Good eye. The rims came off an 80's Ross mtb...

    Red with gold wheels and tan leather interior. That's going to be a pretty sweet ride.
