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)

My first conversion...

I took a mid 80's Huffy Le Grande, i know what your saying Huffy? are you f'ing kidding me? She was of course a free bike so what better than attempt a conversion on. Bought a set of Vuelta's, upgraded brake front only, new SRAM single speed chain, clean and rewrapped the bars in black/gray marble wrap. Planning on tearing her apart next week and sanding and painting the frame gun metal grey. Also thinking about swapping out the 3 piece crank and bearing races for a newer squared bottom bracket and driveline crankset.
