This is my conversion, 1986 Techium 440. New 27s, flipped and chopped the drop bars and overhauled the rest. Before and after pics, open game on opinions.

My opinion is: you don't understand the concept of the 'before and after pic.'
That's not the same bike. Before is a 48, after is 62.

should have specified that the old bike is the same only a smaller frame i have two of them in different sizes, no before pics were taken. i improvised and took a pic of the original bike i still have unaltered after i converted the larger frame to fixed.
