Overbury Pioneer (hopefully) put together with anything lying around the garage and a borrowed chain. Now all I need a pair of rigid 1" threaded forks a long black 27mm seatpost and the frame will be off for some powder coating....

Think it look's really nice, frame and saddle especially! See you got a halflink chain on. Can you get away with another link out of it or maybe go up 1 tooth size on the rear just to get tension right. Dont put a tensioner on it, i think they defeat the singlespeed object. Let's see it again when it's painted. 8)

With 1 less half link I can cut cheese with the chain. I'm not using a tensioner. I'll put pics up when it's finished............

It's getting there, second build up, off to powder coaters next, then final build up with different parts.
