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)

Mostly dura ace. Some high end campy. Campy dropouts.

Saw it in half, stuff the frame with cocaine, sell it, go to Mardi Gras, drop acid, and have a great time! Just watch out for rednecks in pickup trucks.

It means the pictures are stolen from eBay and the OP is a troll. This is second thread about converting a bike by the OP.

Since it doesn't have pedals, I'd use it for the base of a tallbike, the geometry is perfect to match up a large Murry women's 5 speed on top. Couple passes with the arc-welder and that shee will be t-to-he-aiight.
