    Let me present you the improbable meeting of an office table leg and a part of vintage spanish home trainer.

    A film team is shooting me while I'm constructing this bike, and they love to make a lot of teasing during production like many film makers, so that's why I call this bike project "coming soon" . And it's also because that's what I yell at my girlfriend when she calls me every night on my ride back home to see when I get there.
    Anyway, that's where I am at so far.

    That is very cool. I like repurposed builds.

    :oops: Didn't even notice the wheels first time, too busy looking at the frame, but now you mention it...

    Yeah, those are some very cool wheels! 8)
