    Stealth Commuter finished at last.

    13 years of lugging (pun intended) this frame around and here it is. Rolled 28" rims from Malaysia, tyres also, front drum hub from Germany, rear 3 speed/coaster from USA, handlebars from Canada, shifter from USA and all the rest sourced locally. The frame is a 58 Malvern Star, the biggest Aussie manufacturer for most of last century.

    And here is a link to my other build, finished today.

    Love it! Now you just need to do some power slides with that coaster brake.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
