Okay something a little different for me.. Bars upside down and everything. 🤣
I had a blast with this one. I’m calling this a FREE build only thing I spent any money on was some rim strips, all of the parts are out of my parts pile some I have had for a decade or more. Even the 12g spokes are leftovers from another wheel build a few years ago. Just had to trim the rear spokes a little to work. Big thanks to @GuitarlCarl for the perfect front tire and rim.
I believe I bought the front moped hub from @A.S.BOLTNUT 8 or 10 years ago. I couldn’t be happier how the hubs cleaned up and how good they look with 12g spokes and the chrome rims.
Also the frame came from a bike @Markm gave to me years ago. Glad to put it to good use now.
I can pedal and shift with out the shifter hitting my leg. I’ll get the front derailleur hooked up here soon.
Thanks for all the support.
