My ass

It is an old 1984 Cyclepro 10 speed road bike frame that came outfitted with shimano, avocet, suntour, dia-compe and sugino gear. I've slowly added parts, and taken stuff off to make the monster you see here.

The bike has been my daily mode of transportation around San Francisco and Davis since the day i got it, and is a beater commuter bike at heart. It gets a lot of miles and scratches, and is usually seen with fenders, but weather has been nice enough lately to ride without them.

I removed all the frames braze-ons and brackets that were uneccesary without brakes or derailers. I also did the new paintjob myself; it used to have a factory silver/black two tone.

number 511 on velospace (on of the first!). be sure to check out my other bikes here on velo white IRO jamie roy grey and black fuji track

Great Job

masking off the lugs.


red & black are my favorite classic combination... and im a sucker for lugs


favorite conversion i've seen, i like the red and black


appreciate it man. it was a long build up. at the very end I had a sexier seat/post, and some other little stuff, but thats essentially what the thing looked like. shitty random 10 speed frame with a rattle can paint job... go figure
