No, it was originally Sturmey-Archer 3-speed, so that's how I'm building it now.

The difference is that I'm using all black hardware, including the black 700c SA 3-speed wheelset from Handsome Cycles, to highlight that patina under shiny clearcoat for a more dramatic visual effect.

I'll post photos here when it's done.
