Built for my wife. This started life as a free Concord (not concorde) 5sp roadster (had a rear der. no front). Removed a couple braze on's and painted. Was able to rescue the stock headbadge. The best thing about this is the 2sp Bendix hub with a coaster brake. One of the funnest things to ride. Just kick back for a high or low gear and kick back all the way to stop. Doesn't stop too fast, hence the front brake with the crazy reach. Anyway, got the old hub and rebuilt it. Took it apart and replaced the bearings, drum brake pads and some springs. Pain in the @ss. It came out pretty nice though.

with the sick background comment. snice.

Red stripe K/B

I've got one kick back hub with red stripes on it. I don't know what the differences are. I lucked out and got mine after a rebuild. They take a bit of getting used to though; I find that it'll shift when I'm not expecting it to.

sick background man!

sick background man!

That's more rockin'...

I'd recognize that alley on any website.


That is a great lookin bike! You've done an amazing job with the restoration. It is a creative bike with a lot of class. I really would like to take a spin on it!
