I forgot

I made this bicycle for my friend Nora out of an old ugly Gitane road frame. I filed all braze-ons off and removed the horizontal dropouts and rear brake bridge. I tightened up the geometry and added some track ends (with bottle openers). I wanted to give this bicycle an equestrian theme since my friend rides horses so I made a custom bridge that looks like a horse shoe. I also made a horse skull headbadge and used spur straps as toe staps.

ATB This is another bike I keep coming back to.I just went to the garage and lowered the seat on my 1985 Schwinn conversion which is very similar in size and shares the lugged style frame I dig so much.


i dream about this bike.
i actually had a really vivid image of that crank/chainring combo while sleeping last night.


Where did you get those track ends? They're way sweeter than the PaulComps with built in chain tensioners.


This is the best bike I've ever seen in my life.

This is what cycling is all about

Bravo on building a great *real* bike. Your idea for the toe straps is my favorite touch.

very nice, louis vuitton is the new njs...
