    Ok. Not finished, and not SS either (but Mattface started it). You KNOW you'll all want this bike when it's done.

    Sammyboy I totally want that bike! I see where you're going, and that's exactly what I want to build next.

    I want it to be, like, the blingiest, lightest upright 3 speed ever. The frame is from a very early Dawes Galaxy, all 531, with all the lovely chromey bits (love the fork crown). The Stronglight cottered double crankset is coming off, and should sell for what I payed for the whole lot. I bought an 80's 3 speed, which donated the cockpit and wheels, and since it has a generator hub, it donated the front light too. I had lightweight plastic fenders with chrome strips, and a suitably old Brooks in my boxes of stuff, and I was away! It'll get an alloy crankset, a bullet rear light, the chainguard of the other bike (which only cost me a fiver), and then I'll cable it up and be good to go!

    ^That Guerciotti it nice, but looks too "fast" to be a townie. That there is a youngster bike.

    As for the peugeot, you are almost there. Just get some Jitensa bars, or a set of flipped north and you'll rock that "townie style".

    Looks pretty much the same but its rocking some Eggbeater MXR's with black spindles now. Its not really my townie--I ride it everywhere--but I like to show off the Ocean Ghost every chance I can (including at parties with sorority girls when I show up sweaty in tattered rags) .

    garagegirl, Damnit! Sorry for your lost bike. That sucks big. Hoping you've got a spare. Good wishes to you.
    When I was little, I prayed every night for a bike.
    Then I realized the Lord doesn't work that way,
    so I stole one Then I prayed for forgiveness. -emo philips

    I would totally ride that Schwinn. That's a kind of bike we just don't have in the UK. I know we were the winners, having 10 speeds when you guys could only get those, but hey, I'd like both......

    And Mattface - I love my Pletscher rack. It's period appropriate!

    Ebay is your friend. Ebay is way cheaper than going to a vintage bike show F*N collectors.
