    :shock: That is AWESOME! Great job - you definitely captured the essence of the originals.

    SlyRed,

    That is perfect! Everything is really well done. Could you give us a component list of what you put together for this bike?

    Thanks,
    John

    P.S. the more I look at this bike the more details I notice, like the copper colored handlebar grip ends matching the Brooks Special copper rivets on the saddle. Tire logos lined up with the valve stems, etc, etc.

    That would be my Alpine Racer I guess.

    This is what I started with:

    It's an Austrian Steyr:

    that's lovely, but if the trigger don't match the hub (in terms of cable pull if not make) then you'll risk putting all your torque onto a fraction of the width of the teeth of the cogs internally..
    maybe you know this and have reassured yourself already?

    No, I haven't. But I don't ride it very hard, so there is not much torque to speak of.

    OMG! I used to have a steyr like that. It was one of my favorite bikes. I'm still sad that i go rid of it.

    I've already posted my Diamant racer, but I wanted to update it al little bit.

    First a picture of the bike some two or three weeks ago:
    [​IMG]

    But because of exessive riding the wheelset needs some love.
    For my luck the first wheelset for my Indian boardtracker project is finished. So I tested it on this bike:

    Here are a couple of mine, shot in the alley. The sign is posted as a joke, I found it in my old shed. Who would have made such a sign? I like to post the picture with the caption "Does your alley have adequate signage?"
    I'm hoping the style fits in with this thread enough to be of interest.......

    Just finished. For your scorching pleasure, a pre 1919 Columbia Roadster with original Pope cranks, Iver Johnson forks, unknown drop bars and stem, etc, etc.
