    Lets see some conversions!

    Track bikes are nice and all, but I think there is something to be said about a well done conversion.

    I'll start off with mine, although it is far from being well done, and is now scrapped due to a run in with a gate. Thats it in it's mock up stage, in the end it was only front brake and front lever, some brown bar tape and matching tires.

    My 68cm Fuji. Re-brazing, re-painting, and upgrading for my winter project. It'll make for a fun backup.

    Here's mine. I got the frame for 200. I wrapped it in electric tape because the color is so bright (the pic sucks to tell). Its been great and im very thankful to God for this blessing.

    Hey, I like the new stem. That's electrical tape eh? I thought it was balck paint. I think your bike would look nice tapeless in the orange, but ive already *****ed enough to you about it.

    She's mine. Stella. Recently stripped and repainted the frame, new wheels, cranks, saddle and seatpost, bar wrap and brake. I did the Hour of Power race last night in Philly, the first test of the new ride. Not too bad...

    Here's my second conversion, a 1973ish Italvega Nuovo Record. Currently it has red bar tape, a Cinelli stem, and chrome fenders for the winter. I also chopped the Brooks.

    That was my first conversion.

    And that was my second. I acually dont have any conversions anymore. I gave away the Ross frame, and I hung up the Suteki frame because it is too small/dead.
