I'm starting a new project, it is going to be pretty special.
I don't think there is another like this around. :D
A little hint;

You are a great guesser Mr. Toad!
Well, almost. It will not be single speed, but 7 speed Nexus.
The frame will be split here:

This is with the custom dropouts mounted and with a model of an extra
brace on the outside of the frame in case of the frame being to weak.
I think it will be strong enough with only the dropuots.

What I need now is:
- Gates belt
- Gates rear sprocket (ordered on Ebay)
- Nexus hub (bought one and will pick it up this weekend)
- spokes

And then it is building time!
Can't wait to ride this, I've had this idea for years and finally came to execute it.

Update, got the Gates sprocket, so now I can messure how long the belt has to be.
Than the real work starts, filling it, painting it (want to do this myself), finding part etc.
The decals are finished, wanted to design these myself to make it really custom.

I got a wheelset with a Nexus hub and threw some parts together so I can measure the lenght of the belt.
Lots of work to do with sanding and painting the frame and fork.

This has the potential to be great.

Watching with interest.
