    photo (18).jpgphoto (15).jpgphoto (16).jpgphoto (17).jpgphoto (13).jpgphoto (14).jpgHello everyone. This is my attempt to recreate 1920's style single speed townie bicyles. Both bikes are Windsor's from Bikesdirect with new saddles (Brooks). My bike has a front rack and handlebars off an old Dutch bike. Both bikes have new cream tires as well as cool Velo Orange chain guards. Don't like the cheap cranks, actively looking for vintage looking replacements for both bikes. Also, looking at fatter cream tires for mine, have a set ordered, should know this week if they will fit.

    The second bike is a mixte version for my lovely wife. In the last pic you can see we were in a 1920's costume contest in Dallas at Heritage Park and thankfully we won.

    The headlight on the cream mixte is off of eBay and is battery operated. The headlight on the black bike came with the front rack, stem and handlebars from a 1978 Dutch bicycle by Phoenix. This light currently has no power. Working on a solution for that.

    The front rack is off of a 1978 Phoenix Royale Dutch City bicycle. Same place I got the stem and handlebars.

    Nice!

    I used this crankset in all silver for a recent retro build. It aint '20s, but it's 'old school', and I think its handsome enough. FSA Gimondi. A 103mm bottom bracket will give your coaster brake a perfect 42 mm chainline.

    Here is the bicycle with large cream tires and no fenders. Tire clearance is scary close.

    Oh yeah, dat's da ticket. Gunna need a bigger rear cog or bigger legs.

    These cranks used a SR 3S BB axle. The chain size is 1/2X3/32. The pedal size is 9/16". The weight is about 2-1/2 lbs.

    I think I'll go for bigger legs. LOL
    Probably have to lengthen chain as well. The rear wheel is sitting about as far forward as possible in the dropout. I need the rear wheel to sit further back to help with tire/frame clearance.

    Looks good!
    What size tires are those?

    I have the same frame and was toying with the idea of putting on some 50mm Big Apples on it. The micrometer says they should fit, but I am too lazy to take the fenders off only to find out they rub.

    They do rub but very slightly. These tire are the retro made by Continental. They are somewhat expensive, over $30 a tire. And yes no room for fenders. I converted it back to the smaller tires and put the fenders back on. Let me know if you need tires. I could make you a deal.

    I ended up buying a set of FSA Gimondi track cranks. Will attempt to install this weekend.
