that's a decently executed conversion though, very rideable-looking. i'm not a big fan of the solo aero lever, looks kinda awkward and unbalanced. i'd suggest rigging up a dummy one or looking for a bmx or cross lever to use. nice work though, enjoy riding it.
i'd also agree with putting a dummy lever on the other side... adds both asthetics and a bullhorn type riding position.
out of curiosity, why'd you opt to put the right lever -> front brake?

Forget a dummy lever. Why not just have both brakes on there? I mean the cable guides are already there, and you already have the brake and lever. I think it would totally class that bike up though it already is pretty classy. Another way to class it up IMO would be some gumwall tires.
Post this over in the Classic and Vintage forum. You'll be real popular over there.
Nice conversion but I second the idea of adding a rear brake. Thank goodness you didn't grind off the cable guides. I've done a couple of conversions and have a couple more on tap but I don't do anything irreversible to the bike.
Don't take any gruff about your carpet. Leave it how it is. I just cleaned mine last night then about noon today I decided to strip down my hardtail MTB and get it ready to turn it into a SS. Big black spots all over this gerber carpet now. Heres to losing your security deposit!
