Follow-up to my earlier thread on the pink three-speed I am tricking out for my wife. Late (very late) birthday present. Il Rinascimento del Torpado "Europa"
My ship has come in. Now I just have to get wheelz built, buy tires (thanks Neal for the tip on the Schwalbe Delta Cruiser), finish rebuilding the frame with J&B Weld (a few rust issues), then paint the mother pink. Oh, yeah, and I need lights for it. And wickery baskets.
Here are the new front and rear hubs, stem and bars (though I may get regular north roads and seize these bars for myself): new SA dynamo/drum front, drum for freewheel rear (shown with three-speed freewheel--looks like I might want to re-space that bad boy), nitto technomic short-reach tallboy and cheapie dimension double-bends.
Edit-oops, it looks like I wrote over one of the views of the front hub. Oh well, you get the idea.
Hee. Hee. Hee.
