    Carlton Cobra build

    It's one of Brick Lane Bikes own stems. On sale it cost me £3 - about $5.

    SRAM Automatix. Two speed auto. Shifts up at a certain road speed so it required a bit of experimentation with sprockets to find the sweet spot. No longer made unfortunately, I managed to find one in stock at a German online store. It stops well, doesn't fade. But it weighs a ton.

    Two speed auto. 650c front wheel. Rob (Gonzo) English is making me a custom bar. Next is a Monark springer (with longer rockers). Check the rough hewn rear facing drop-out which drop it 7/8 and lengthen it an inch.

    Very very cool. I hope you're gonna make it puff smoke out of the tail pipes with every pedal stroke. :-)
