holy shit great build dude

coaster hub,

have you had any problems with the coaster hub?

coaster

The only problem with this hub is that it was shipped with not quite enough grease inside so it squeals a little if I brake to hard. I've read that it is somewhat common on these hubs. Im planning on repacking it though which should fix the problem. Also, i've had two shimano coaster hubs which work awesome but aren't as pretty as well as a sturmey archer hub which totally sucked.

thanks. I got it on ebay but there don't seem to be any of those specific ones on sale anymore. I'm sure more will pop up though. There are some actual vintage lights on ebay right now,

but mine was brand new and is quite a bit larger than most actual old lights. If you do buy an old light, you can convert it to use an LED and battery

It's not really that bright, but I guess it's mostly aesthetic anyway.
