Here's the end result of a three month project...
Nottingham made Raleigh Sprite frame, hand stripped down to bare metal and clear powder coated. Velocity Deep-V rims in Bassboat Blue/Green laced with black DT Swiss 2x butted spokes to Black Surly "New" fixed/free hub and front hub. Surly 15 tooth cog and lock ring Continental Gator Skin 700x23c tires. Sugino RD2 165mm cranks with a 43 tooth All-City Messenger chainring and a 1/8" KMC Cool Chain.
The seat, seatpost, quill stem, and handlebars are generic used parts from a local bicycle parts Nonprofit, and will be changed out as I can afford to for higher end components.
The final step in this project will be next summer when I move all the components over to either a white SOMA Rush or a white IRO Mark V Pro track frame. Till then, this baby is done.
