Hi, guys. I was away for a couple of months. Family matters took me abroad and I was away from bikes for a while. I really miss riding my bikes, especially the last I got. I saw a video with Keanu Reeves lately and he complained that he goes through withdrawal if he doesn't ride (motor)bikes for a while. So just a few days before I left I had bought this frame from a guy in my village: On this photo the bike is with a Felt wheel I mocked up, originally had a normal thin casette wheel. It had stood in the rain, the guy honestly said. It has some rust. Fork is ok, seat in very good condition, but brakes, gearing, chain were pitch black and crusty. Poor guy complained that he tried to wash the chain and then it got even worse. Handlebars are awesome and cost alone the price I paid for the bike - 50$. I had parts I had taken off my Felt when I eletrified it and slapped the cranks on the frame - I indeed ended replacing everything except for the cups. The original cranks were in the same condition as the gearing and brakes. On this pic with the new cranks (175mm I think I usually ride 170) and old fork still. I have another green fork for this bike, but even though it has a dynamo holder, the gray one has more agressive blades: It turned out the chain must be really tight not to rub on the tire - it clears hardly (2mm) and only with the Thick brick tire, but not with the Berm Master I had in mind when I decided to buy the bike to rob it of its frame. (See, originally this wheel had a SA hub with an offset sprocket so chainline was never an issue. With the Shimano hub now residing in that rim an offset sprocket is not easy to fit. But then I saw that I can fit these 28-630 wheels (27x1,25) in it. As soon as I got back I started playing with it. I tried some fenders, but none seemed right. I have the whole set of those fenders, but I really think it looks better with no fenders. The hub is 3 sp Torpedo Sachs, I took off the whole wheelset off a green lady bike, the hub brushes included. The rims have some engravings in them, I should take closer photos: The stem came with the wheels: I am testing seats and handlebars for now. It is geared 46x22. It could go to 23, the chain is still just a bit loose. It will actually be with this seat, (the one it came with) for now, it will most probably have cruiser handlebars, these are a little too far for my taste, we'll see. This rear light was a good idea but it didn't fit under the seat with tne new seat post: I also have this pretty bell, off another very old Krystall bike (plus brake, headlamp and dynamo): Those grips are temporary. Everything is more or less in some way vintage on this bike. Well not everything but the brake lever and gear lever too: The brake and the headlamp: The dynamo, the holder says made in France, don't know if the holder only or the dynamo too.: I would like to get a vintage rear light, I like the one I have but it is a bit too modern for this bike now. This is actually a german built bike, with a german built frame. I do not much like the writings, but they don't really bother me.
