Currently built up as a left hand drive fixie:

Need to ditch the V-brake on the front and get a matching LX canti to go with the rear.

It was built in '93 as a geared frame and converted to Singlespeed (and resprayed Afrika Korps sand) in '96 by Guy Kesteven (now on What MTB I think)

I got it in '97.

Nice. You using tandem cranks I take it? Doesn't the fixed rear sprocket try and unscrew itself when you ride it ?

Not tandem cranks, just 5 minutes swapping spindles when I serviced the pedal bearings.

The cog would unscrew if I put that much torque on it. I'm off and walking before we reach that stage.
