...other than coaster bikes you mean ;-)

I will toss the 1936 Bomber in again, just for SnG - it's my office bike right now since my town bike got turned into a kiddo hauler. Original pre-war Morrow hub with "20T" sprocket (skip-tooth, it's really got ten teef like a true meth head), inch pitch chain, "52T" sweetheart chainring - beefy.

I've had some nice comments about "Kermit" the Kona so
I'll enter him for a laugh. Only one ride old in this form but ...it's a singlespeed all the same, and a one off :D

I'm sure bikes without chains don't count but what the heck . . . here's my Clock'work in progress' . . .

. . . still waiting for the postman (orange toestrap end buttons, little Onza porc decals, stem bolt, b/b axle nuts - damn cranks kept falling off as I was taking the pics :wink: . . . oh, and a gold chain). I'm sure Gil will be able to sort me out with a cool 90s decal set.

Big thanks to Al for the frame, forks and stem and Jez for the rear tyre :D
