stock steel Azuki




stock, welded freehub body to make it fixed




i found this bike in my basement, i think its from the early 70's. i was trying to fix this bike as cheap as possible and i think i accomplished that. the only thing i spent money on was a few cans of spray paint and a new rear axle,( total). i welded the freehub body to keep it from ratcheting, the first two cogs on the freehub are threaded and the larger three behind are slotted , so i removed the larger and kept the 17 and 14 tooth cogs using the 14 as the locking ring. the whole thing has worked out very well and its been fun rebuilding and even more riding.
