    When I got it, it did have the original grips.

    Is that a shimano FFS crankset? I've always though it would be fun to use one of those with a fixed gear rear wheel.

    Looks like a good and cheaper start for a Rivendell clone

    The combination of flat bar grips and levers with drop bars, along with the fender gives it an old-timey vibe.

    I will go with a sprung saddle, but not the fat cruiser kind, but the English racer type.

    If I find a seatpost for the tall road bike, it will also be one of these.
