    It was a Gitane Tour de France from the early 70's I got in 75.
    But the fork wrecked, so it got replaced with a Columbus steel fork. And repainted.
    And the wheels, pedals, headset, seatpost, saddle, stem brakes and bars were changed along the way.
    Now it has a new rear wheel...
    So I'm not sure what it is now.

    and I still need to post a photo of the whole thing...

    Fixed, but a flip-flop hub just in case my knees and brain can't adjust.

    As promised, here's the bike. We got about 7 miles in, just to try it out. It's really weird. Riding is fine, stopping is different, even with the brakes. Downhill is interesting.

    I'm pretty strong, and very fast, so I think I could ride it up and down any hill, as long as it's less then a 1% grade.

    I'm wanting a SS. When ever (or more like IF ever) I can afford a new bike, I'll convert my backup into a SS/FG similar to the one pictured.

    Nice lookin bike!

    Yessssss. Somewhere flatish would be good.
    I'd have to air up the tires on my fixie though since I haven't ridden it in months.

    Curtis, keep at the fixed side and soon you be able to do 150+ RPM no problem. Just learn to keep the legs somewhat loose.

    Looks great, good job! You've even got the fixed-gear-OCP bug, with the matching brake housing, crank dust cap, straps, and even anodized toe cages.

    Don't listen to this man!

    Last time he promised a flat route around and through SF, my legs were sore for a week.

    Only problem with learning the "fixed gear coast" is that when you instinctively try it on a freewheeled bike, it's really awkward there for a second.
