Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Finished my CCM bike build - PICS

Started off with a 1972 CCM - Formula One - Reynolds 531 Frame. Stripped and repainted the frame.
I bought the Vuelta Wheels and paired them with a 9 speed 12-34 SRAM cassette and Deore long cage dérailleur.
I decided to keep the cottered crank but run a single front ring since there aren't that many hills around Ohio.
It's controlled by a rapid fire shifter that is mounted just beside the brake levers, allowing for braking and shifting
from the same hand position without brifters. I made drop bolts and attached a set of Cane Creek SRC-3 brakes to the $20 Tektro lever set.

All together, it cost just over $300 and weighs about 25 pounds with pedals... not too bad for being 35 years old.

Is that texture on the fork intentional?

Frankenbike. I'm scared, but commend your inventive nature. Please get some long reach brakes so your mother can sleep at night.

(not all work with every frame, measure your reach first)

I do like your use of the old cottered crank with single ring.
Needed a 70mm reach, which wasn't possible with most long reach brakes.

BMX brakes will probably do the job, though, something like https://www.acehardwareoutlet.com/(3u...aspx?SKU=82817. I get scared just looking at this setup...

I'd hit it, but with plenty of rubbers on and a penicillin shot on hand. Nice job.

The pictures are way too small. Can you make them larger so my neighbors next door can enjoy them as well?

Take the brakes off disassemble you spacers and clean up the edges with a file, what you have there looks sloppy.

I resized these to 1500 max, guess that's overkill for a forum... will do.
