Needed - Old bike for fixie project

Recommended Posts

I've been noodling about with the idea of building a fixie, which I'm thinking about stopping noodling and starting to actually do something...

 

My plan has been to trawl the pawn shops looking for a candidate bike - I'd just be looking for a 70's / 80's racer.

 

Are there better ways to source a frame?

I have an early 90's steel racer that I want to sell. 57cm frame.

Would that interest you?

Looks good, but I'd ideally like wheels / crankset included.

 

I'm 6ft. Will it fit? And most important: how much? :)

It's 95% complete, just missing cables and bar tape. It has nice Campy Delta rims, rear with Shimano 105 hub and front with original Sansin hub.

 

Cranks are Suntour (I painted them white, but easy enough to strip if you want them silver again. Exus clipless pedals. Shimano EX500 brake levers. Dia Compe calipers. Nice quill stem. Very light saddle - Kevlar with manganese rails.

 

I'll take R1000 for the lot.

Hi I assume you have a frame already?

I bought new break cables, Grey bar tape, new saddle.
