Just a measured estimate with this skip tooth, looks to be comparable to a 53/16 fixie ratio. That’s board track gearing and roadster compromise. This one has a bell on it (still works!) for riding like a “Scorcher”.

I laughed at your Scwinn comment.
I'm jealous - ever since I made my '51 Raleigh my daily, a part of me keeps gnawing on the idea of "older, lighter, faster." Sounds like you've found all three.

Look at it this way: I laugh at Schwinn electroforged bikes
