Had a bike building session with @kelvin hahnel today, when we finished on his we decided to throw the old girl together and take it for spin!

Going to switch to a layback post and I have another seat out getting wrapped in new leather for it, but it is a great rider and already more comfortable than most modern bikes!

The wheelset is awesome, the modified hub is easily the best coaster I have ever used, great modulation range before lock-up, quick and positive engagement and a very small rotation from full forward to full back, the Arayas are lighter than the original rims and those fat gum walls suit perfectly!

The frame has great geometry for cruising and is still short enough to throw around, surprisingly light all up too!

Very happy!

Now to just strip it all back down and clearcoat the original paint, throw the layback and new seat on it and it is done... Aside from the heatsink of course! ;)

Wow! Haven't seen this bike since January 15th, it's a cool one though!
Nice seats always make a bike look complete.

A few people have asked about the tires and where to get them, so I managed to track down where I got them from and other links, all only in Australia though...

They are Hwa Fong 26x2.1 gumwalls.

The place I got them, they were cheaper ($15 each) back then:
