Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Excitement part Bazillion

Paint's done!

If you missed last week's episode this is a Don Walker lugged steel bike made with an NOS Columbus tubeset and Long Shen lugs. It's his "homage to NJS" frame (he usually fillet brazes his frames), hence the Katakana (phonetic) logo.
The lug accents are red, not orange, apparently.
For those who care, the bike will be finished with a Dura track gruppo, with Nitto steel cockpit and Open Pros wearing Michelin ProRace2s
It will be gangsta

Interesting -- those headlugs are standard long shen? Did you do the cutouts, or were they part of the set? The scallops on the front look identical to those on my Panasonic, so I'm curious...

Looks really great Don!

Well there you go; a 15-year waiting period. No thanks.
