I picked this up last summer and stripped it down as most parts were fubar. I decided to make it a single speed city bike instead of the derailleurs and drops it originally came with. The last things I plan on purchasing for it are a set of fenders and a basket for trips to the grocery store. I was thinking a set of hammered VO fenders, better calipers/levers, and maybe a removable wicker basket for the front. I tried a rear rack but it didn't do it for me and my wife give it a big NO. I thinking of some better brackets. The Universal centerpulls that came on it worked pretty good but we have traintracks that run through our smaller town and have overpasses on every street that passes over it. So in order to get to the side of town with most of the businesses she'll have to go over the bridges. Mind you I have two smaller ones also who will be either in a trailer or child seat. I'd rather have something with some more bite with the extra weight and safety. Here's a quick picture I took of it.
