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)

Thank you for posting these. I remember seeing this style get up in the long ago. Plus it's a CW cruiser to boot. I would like to own such a bike for about a week or so. Just because I would never really ride it but just to show people.

Forget about the bike and get me that skin suit. Guarenteed first place at the next haloween party.

woody itson is over at vintagebmx.com and he is currently rebuilding the gold hutch trickstar to its former glory.

campy made cranks and hubs in silver, gold, red, and blue for bmx back in the late 70's early 80's.

i hope people realize you can take any all aluminum part and have it anodized by a local plater for not too much money. so if you want gold ano track bars and stem you can have it done your own self instead of paying out the wazoo on the bay.
