nice score for $190.. ride it and enjoy it! Tange 2 frame and a mix of Shimano 105 and 600 components for that price is definitely a good deal.
if you want a fixed gear bike, keep this one geared and look for a dedicated FGSS frame is my recommendation. you can buy brand new fixed gear bikes these days for less than you can convert them
ps... LOVE that paint job..
I agree great looking bike at a good price. I actually can't believe guys in the Fixie forum were voting to keep it geared, guess their not all bad. I am sure you'll be more than happy having gears on that especially if you live in a hilly area.
