Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

new project

i picked this up for 25 including all you see here, plus a new brake and chain.i plan on converting it to fixed. i want to replace the bb and crank, the only prob is it has cottered cranks and one of the pins is messed up. Any tips for removing it, also does anybody have any info on the frame?







thanks
