The big red bike.
I did a little work on a friend's bike. It's a nice old Motobecane that I believe will be used as a coffee shop racer.
It originally had a funky crank in which the large chainring was directly attached to the arm, making a single speed conversion difficult. I pulled an old Takagi crank out of the parts bin; it came off my 1984 Ross Mt. Whitney, if anyone remembers those.
I theft-proofed it with some solid axles, threw on some old Dia Compe brake levers, and performed a general tune-up. I test rode it as best I could, but the bike is HUGE.
Anyway, I think it's a cool bike:
In return, Eric put together a custom 12-pack of big bottle brews that should keep me busy for a while:
Thanks, Eric, and sorry it took so damn long.
