    That goose was probably made in the eighties, judging by the flat canti brakes. Are you planning a two stroke or thumper?

    It's going to be a fixed gear city bike for now.

    Good choice. That vintage chromo frame is pretty indestructible.

    Got her all back together. Had fun dishing the rear wheel. Ended up with a 2.67 gear ratio.
