What is the status of this build?
I say go coaster brake - its appropriate and you don't worry about original wheel diameter and brake size. Go internal gear if you ride far. Go aluminum rim 26" Get skinny slicks or giant slicks. Alloy bmx seatpost and clamp, alloy quill stem and whatever alloy bars you like. Is that a small BB - get a new cartidge BB and any old 3 piece crank. HOT!

end of story

original crank, no gears, skinny 27's, negative quill stem, track bars. end of story. new pics on progress soon. check out velodog, totally badass
ArlieMarshall ,puttin' up my dukes and givin' a damn.

all njs

I think you should do this one up all njs . do they make a njs bannana seat ? I'm pretty sure they make njs sissy bars .one for all all for one!

all njs no muscle

when i got the bike, it was built into a muscle bike. the ape hangers were njs i think. yeah right. i really want to make it look track inspired. i thought about getting nitto bars and stem and upgrading the fork and headset but i might wait. using njs would be great but i don't plan on it.
anyway, i like your cannondale alot, definetly sharp.
