Offroad fixie based on 1950s Elswick Hopper
Early 50s Elswick Hopper Lincoln Imp tourer retrofitted with Marathon 35Cs, Shimano sealed BB, Sugino 165mm road cranks, Maillard high flange hubs, GB bars, Alhonga dual-pivot brake. Geared 43/18. I specced the bike to let me ride offroad/roughstuff on the cheap, using mostly salvaged parts and a home respray. The build was done by the ace Bike Workshop in Notting Hill, though, and those Alesa box rims didn't come cheap. If you like this sort of thing, there's a longer write-up plus other bike projects at http://www.meister.com/cheap/ .
