19,071 • My first proper racing bike, purchased in the mid 1980s, brand unknown. Have just completed converting it to fixed gear. Pulled absolutely everything apart (stopped short of removing spokes from rims – but thought about it!). Metallic green re-spray. Replaced all bearings. Tried to keep original parts and remove as much rust as possible. Added: new chain, whitewall tyres and adjustable stem. Wheels are original chrome 27×1 1/4.
Didn’t know anything about fixed gear bikes before I started but after my first ride of this bike I was hooked.
