An easy build using late '70s Schwinn Le Tour II mixte style lugged frame from Japan (Giant). Stock cranks, chain-ring (39-tooth), pedals, chrome fork, bars, levers, seat (rock hard and due for replacement). French Avocet 27x1 1/4 wheel in front; rear is 'suicide hub' with 16-tooth cog screwed on with no lock ring or locktite (dual brakes). Had to change rear brake to a side-pull with longer reach using the 700c wheel. Chain-line was perfect. Bike is light, smooth and stable. Built for my wife who thinks she wants a single-speed but I am betting she will get into the zen of the fixie.
