I aquired an early 70's grand prix , in the fall. It's my size and i've always wanted one, so I could turn it into a city bike,
I am starting this thread as a place to document all the events...
I currently have VO porteur bars and city levers ordered, with SKS Chromoplastic fenders, (couldn't swing the VO hammered fenders), with Panaracer Pasellas as well.
my inspiration for the color and idea came from TampaRaleigh's 2 speed coastie...seen here i really enjoyed the color and the style, and wanted to do a similar project
I am going to do a cork wrap on the bars and shellac and twine the ends.. hopefully i can figure this out with the city levers.. i have inverse levers in my parts bin but i was hoping to save those for another project, and i really like the look of the city levers
anybody want to donate a b17 ? i have a post in the ISO thread if your open to trades....
for now.. here is the before pic
