Hi, I am hoping to find a 70s road bike with a vertical drop out and turn it into a single speed. Are there any picturials for this? Do any of you have any links? Is there anything else I should look for besides the drop out when looking to purchase an old track bike?

Check the dropouts, make sure its near your size and check for rust holes and cracks before you take a trash find.

thanks, I want this bike to be as lite as possible, but it will receive a lot of abuse, is aluminum out of the question then? Is there a certain metal that would be best suited for this application?
