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)

Worth a project?

by posting this auction, it's sure to increase the price. if the price stays low, definitely worth it.

I doubt that. Adam G has posted other ebay finds in the past and they were not connected to Jake's Antiques in Illinois. I think he just wants a quality vintage frame with a decent price (as most of us do). I would buy the Dutch frame in an instant if it fit and the price stays low, but I bet the frame will be bid upwards of 200-300. The frame appears to be in excellent condition.

It doesn't look so hot to me and it will hit $500 which makes it very unattractive.
