I built this bike mainly from scrap parts. The frame I found in a ditch, the Torpedo hub is from a bicycle scrap heap at a dormitory, the same with the rims. I rode this bike for commuting and seldom for touring over the last 15 years, but now it is retired. Because of the long wheelbase and the large caster the bike likes to go straight.
