Im new into the world of bicycle-reparation, and I got some questions.
Last summer i bought a used Helkama Flying Finn (it is a roadracer) for about 35$ on the Norwegian used-market.
It was a wreck when i bought it, and it almost didnt work. The gear was unusable etc. It is a Finnish roadracer from the 70s i guess. Since last summer I have lacquered it and oiled the crank and that stuff you will do when you fix a bike.
Now I see that I need new tires, and I thaught about these, in black, but I find it a bit expensive. Any ideas to some cheaper variants?
My last question is: How much will it cost if I want to change the whole thing into fixed gear, and where is it smart to buy the parts?
Sorry for my bad English, im Norwegian..
