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.
