    Beautiful bike.

    There's a guy here in Poland... I bet he has one... or two, or at least knows what brand it is :21: The guy is a total guru when it comes to old bikes, and has tons of them (also tons of money, since he recently bought an 80's Bianchi Vento as a "daily bike").

    BO15 Emsbroek & Poesse Ratracer (pg4, vlog update #2)

    I was going to ask if it's a holster for a Tokariev pistol (also known as TT). :21: Looks very simmilar, both in size & style.

    This is mine from last years MBBO. Works fine with one layer of rubber from an old tube, and 3 layers of electric tape :21:

    BO15 American Boy aka. Twisted Sister

    Thanks! By the way, It's mounted between the spacers on the freehub body, so it only rotates when you pedal.

    BO15 Lean Mean Green Machine

    They do make them with Canbus circut, so they run smoothly from 0V to 12V. Also You can run a normal LED with a plastic spacer between the wires. Always less power consuming than a 5W bulb.
