    My New SS!!

    Here's my new SS conversion, taken with my new digi cam!!
    Its not completly finished yet, it needs a rear brake setup.
    Gearing is 44 X 16 free, possibly fixed in the future???
    This gear ratio is perfect for fast crusing through the boston streets. It gets me to where i'm going in a hurry.

    This bike used to be my mom's when she toured Europe in the early 1980s.
    Its been sitting in the basement for years, and I brought it back to life by a SS conversion.
    All the parts are original, except the 44 t salsa ring, 16t dicta bmx freewheel, wtb seat, new chain, new tires, and new aero levers. That's the stock handlebar, cut down to make a ghetto TT bar.

    I may also paint it in the future....

    Very cool. And I agree, don't paint over your mom's memories. Clean the surface rust off and clearcoat maybe?
    When the going gets weird its bedtime.
