    halfway done

    EDIT: FINISHED PICS BELOW


    any suggestions?

    those bars arent final, i am putting some SOMA track bars on there, but i sort of like how the stubbys look actually.

    Yeah I'm about that far backwards with my Peugeot; my wheels and hardware are coming and I'll be replacing the crank when my pay comes in. What frame is that?

    personally i hate the bars...

    and with the color frame a think a brown saddle (ala brooks) would look nice.. if i was you i'd put a front basket and brake on that baby too...

    I wouldn't go for track drops, myself - especially with a relaxed frame like that, it'll defeat the whole purpose of 'em while also doing a number on your back... go for some nice comfortable road drops or three-speed bars or something.

    Track drops on conversions are still ugly as ****,
    but otherwise that's a good looking conversion.
