    And here it is...the no personality bike :mrgreen:
    it's a rider, intended to build a shifter but before wanted to know if the nexus 7 was in working order... and the answer is... NO :cry: Must have made a mistake but don't know which one for the moment. Cable has been properly mounted, no weird noises, but nothing happens when i change gears...

    To end the story, i think i didn't reach my goal to make it look like an old bike... it's still for me a chinese p.o.s.!!!!

    I dunno about looking like a Chinese POS...I like it. It might not look old, but it does look good. And I LOVE the machine marks on the inner piece of that chainwheel. Then again, I'm weird like that...show me machining marks and make the structural pieces into a design element.

    Nothing to be concerned about doing a good job with the parts you can access.

    Looks like you managed to get it to come together in the end and I am sure looking a heap better than it's various starting points were.
