After 8 years of extensively riding my Nishiki Fixie, I decided to completely overhaul it and change its configuration to that of a Scorcher lookalike. After tear down and surface preparation, I had the frame and forks powder coated in glossy black. The tyres were replaced with Schwalbe 700 x 35mm cream Delta Cruisers. The Nitto Moustache bars are adorned with a bottle mount and cage, a Kleen Kanteen bottle, a brass bell and bar end plugs all supplied by Velo Orange who also supplied the spacious saddlebag. The saddle is a Brooks B17. The brake levers are 1980 vintage Campagnola. The hubs and sprocket are Miche the chainwheel is Campy Veloce and the pedals Shimano M 324.
With the Delta Cruisers inflated to about 55psi the ride is very smooth, silent and comfortable. The gearing is 70inches which is ideal. I'm very pleased with the outcome.
