Winter bike, fun project, a blast to ride. Decided on this pretty little frame over the Pake C'Mute. I built it with my long-gone Nishiki fixed gear conversion in my heart.

Frame Saver and cartridge bearings for the rain. Braek coz I dunno how to ried bieks.

Thanks Merry Sales!

Sold it to my roommate. She was a faithful steed, but I sold her like a filthy whore for grocery money. Making room for my next project, a 70s Botecchia with a seized seatpost.

thank you

very much!

The hamburger bell with the googly eyes is the best!

Finally...

It's nice to see a practical Kilo. I just got one in the same size and I'm glad to see fenders will fit. Nice build.

thanks!

glad you like it. Yeh, the fenders fit fine; only issue is a bit of toe overlap. But it's nice to have a frame with zippy handling that also has all the necessary drillings and eyelets for fenders, racks, etc.

looking forward to seeing your Kilo; btw I like the setup on your schwinn traveler. Reminds me of my conversions way back ol' when :)

Love your bike.

ATB The bars are so cool.I am putting a similar bar,black, on my Schwinn conversion,shortening the grip area.I love the colors and total look of your bike.
