Thought i would lob in my fixie - first one was a conversion of my old Geoffrey Butler race bike - but i have now put that back to its original 1975 spec and built my 'super fixie'

Well i got some time to kill, this thread should do it! hope you enjoy looking at some not so amazing bikes

mostly very low budget though, ill show the best pics of each, oldest first

My first fixed gear, SE Draft (dumpster)

Image

Image

Second fixed gear, Fuji classic track

Image

Image

Spare parts bike and first conversion, Peugeot Touriste

Image

Image

The winter bike for last year, Dawes civic (now my girlfriends winter, commuter, beater)

Image

Image

Then i got a bit poor and had to sell my bikes and settle with a cheap conversion, wish i never painted it to! Guerciotti sprint

Image

Image

I needed money so i sold parts off this, i still don't want to sell the frame, Orbit low pro

Image

Wanted to try some thing that was a bit comfier, just as a test ride, now made it geared again as my commuter, Peugoet premiere

Image


but now i got a job i'm selling off the Guerciotti and orbit to fund the build of a proper track frame, and i have no room for them all, so its a brand new Dolan pre-cursa next!

Posted this in the road bike section but for those that missed it here is my first Fixed project. Built the old way from whatever was laying around.

Got fed up with the rubbish 1990s paint on my Holdsworth and I'd recently seen a product called Gibbs. An always liked "raw" frames, so I decided I'd give it a go.. Image Image

Hey Some Guy, I like what you did there. Please could you elaborate on the Gibbs product? Is this something to protect the steel? I would like to try that with an old steel frame that I don't want to respray.

Cheers.
I'd seen a link for Gibbs on LFGSS very recently. Seems interesting and I found some easily on Ebay. Although I havn't used it long enough to know if it actualy works yet..
