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)

If it's in good condition, those are all nice vintage parts.

I'm not sure what need you're trying to fill with that bike with the tubulars and all, but sure. It seems like it's worth it.

All the parts seem in good shape
