Sugino Messenger

Rolls White Leather

Sylvan Track Pedals

Assembled from all sorts of odds and ends. Picked up the frame, saddle and stem on ebay. The rest picked up at various bike shops in London, and the tyres whilst I found myself in San Diego.

Been riding this for a couple of years now, the novelty hasn't worn off :)

So sick

This thing is redonk, so sick


please give that bike the campy goodness it deserves. Why convert such a gorgeous piece of history?

the best things in life aren't things...

tough crowd..

the frame was rescued from a skip, complete with a serial number that's been partially filed off. so it's had a chequered past.

i did get hold of a campag super record crankset, but had a lot of trouble with the chainline.

reminds me, i should probably give those another home....

BB for chainline

I use a miche track bb with my strada cranks. The bb gives an adjustable chainline. Chainline is about 1mm out, which has not given me any probs. Would look sweet on this bike.

white is tight! looks

white is tight! looks fresh, indeed.
