I'd clean it up and look like new again. (oh and put F & R mechs on :lol: )

bahaha, rear mech maybe if want to go off road with it, as its currently being used its staying single speed.

I think i may just strip the lacquer and redo it.
do people think i should have silver wheels??
i just dont know if black will work.

I think silver rims would look best.
IMHO it needs a different rear tire too...that Kenda looks massive.
Whilst getting a new rear hub, thought about hub gears ?? (e.g. shimano alfine)

i was thinking silver rims but balck spokes and hubs, would mean i wont need a new rear hub. if i was going to get gears i would just get a rear mech as id need a tensioner anyway and after not much deliberation ive come to the realisation they suck.


and yeah, the tyres are temporary, i had them sitting around.

I'm with you on the black hubs, but less sure about the black spokes.
