    The seafoam green is stunning! And I'd go for the middle fork, or the one on the left, but that grey one's got a bit more "downhillandthebrakesdon'twork"-look. :D

    It would if it wasn't a skip-tooth.
    Except someone on here made a skiptooth 2 speed.
    They used a Huret derailer that used round wheels as pullys, instead of those with teeth, and the back two gears of an old freewheel. I guess that some used skiptooth sprockets on the very largest, because when it is that large, there isn't a need for all of the teeth, and they wanted to drop weight, which is funny because those were some of the heaviest freeewheels.

    I got some new handlebars and tried them on the frame to see how it might end up.
