tis new to me this, anyway, I have fancied going fixed for a while so bought a full bike on ebay to convert.
I have heard kittens die because of this? I checked with Sheldon and got some info.
I am keeping most as original as I can, the paint is nice and stays and forks chromed so any grinding, fileing, brazing track ends on is a no i think for the time being.
Its a late 80's TT bike 531 frame, very light, good components.
So far i have taken off the bits I don't need and put a new chain ring on , (cranks are mavic 144 bcd). The BB is campag and with the cranks give a 45mm chain line. I am waiting for a back wheel from Betd (I initially went to brixton but it was £40 more?) which should line up nicely. Then it should all be tickadeboo.
The bike came with 2 sets of wheels and 5 cassettes, I will keep the 2 fronts. I will try to sell the rears. Offers
wheels are 700cc, one has a campag record hub (screw on type), Wolber tx profil rim. The other is a ofmega (screw on cassette) with a worn open pro. Cassettes vary in size and spread of gears 2 by suntour, 1 maillard, 1 regina extra and 1 regina america.
that is all, any ideas or advice would be good, pit falls I may not have thought of?

^so close! I;d be riding that thing... tyres and tubes, yeah?
@Hoggle - are the freewheels 7 speed? Could be interested in the Reginas.
...and you will get a MUCH better price for the Campag wheel if you keep the pair together.

I thought I'd get a better price keeping a pair of wheels together, but I kind of wanna keep the 2 front wheels. The campag front wheel is radial and looks nice on the bike, the other will be kept as a spare in case of buckling.
I'm not that fussed about how much I would get for the back wheels and cassettes as the bike was not that pricey in the first place.

There's an ahead version available in black and I believe....bright yellow!
Quill versions aren't made anymore. There's some available from a US ebayer who's charging shitloadss! (£115+ before shipping).
Got mine from ebay.de £26 inc postage! ;)
I'm hoping the 26.0 stem will go easy on the 26.4 bars.
Just need some nice long black track grips.
Strong G's or V's should work well...

just got this, might be a bit small for me but having ridden bmxs i'm sure this won't be much of a problem. I'm thinking matt black spray with white or gold highlights then chrome and silver for the rest of the parts. Anyone have any nice ideas for what i could do?

*even thought im not a fan of blue, i think a cool colour will look fantastic against that shiny "cool" chrome.
make sure you get all those "nobs" and cable attachments sawed off and polished

haha nothing really, but i guess it's a project until it's built up. I'm not really a fan of the colour though so I think the frame's going black before it's built up. Pretty excited to be riding something other than my lo-pro. I need to find bottom bracket and headset too.

for fucks sake. my frame was metallic purple when i got it and i convinced myself to powdercoat it white. fail.
that paint is incredible! sounds like you're building from scratch so you could easily make it work! for the love of god don't repaint!
EDIT: what size is it? would you sell it?

keep it, it look like some classic NOS bike once you build it up.
