So This is what the puch looks like after a few hours of stripping cleaning and rebuilding. it has had 2 new wheels fitted. The Rear wheel is a Sealed flip flopTrack Fixed hub setup as a fixed gear with a 16t chainring, this is a 700c wheel.
the front is a 700c wheel with a shimano hub on the wheels do not match but are very similar and are exactly the same size. it has also had a pair of gum wall tyres put on it which keep with the vintage look of the bike
Shimano Front hub
Here you can see the new stem i put in it was just lying around in the workshop at work so i put that on and it looks so much better you can also see a bit of the bra tape i wrapped the bars with. I have not quite finished the wrapping yet as i did not have any white tape to finish it with
This picture shows some of the rust around the bottom bracket. i decided not to Re-spray the frame as i like how the rust adds to the vintage feel of the bike
Standard toe clip pedals
You can see a bit of rust on the seat springs i could have ground it off but i thought that it adds to a bit of the character of the bike. is also a really comfy saddle!
Well There you go. The Puch Fixie is finished and looking really good ! the white bar tape and gum wall tyres really go with the overall look of the bike. i have had a brief ride of it and it really is a lovely bike to ride !
