My summer project....
Hey guys, I just wanted to say hi and to show you guys the summer project I just started.
Last weekend I was able to pick up a nice appolo frame for 20 bucks. After some thought I have decided to make myself a singlespeed/fixed bike.
Im been riding a bike forever but I have never build up an old frame before nor do I know much about single speeds/fixed. All new to me but I think it will be a very fun learning experience. Got to start somehow right?
Anyways, I thought Id share my progress from time to time and I am sure I will hav lots of questions for you all as I go along.
So far I have stripped off the componenets and started sanding the bike for a nice fresh paint job. Originally I was going to paint it myself, but i think ill get it powder coated. Less hassle as I dont really have the space for the painting
Heres a pic of the original bike
Ill post another picture this weekend, once I get her all sanded down. Hope to get it painted in the next couple weeks. I was thinking of going matte black or maybe a dark purple. Still undecided on colors though
Oh, if you know some good websites to learn some useful info, feel free to post em
