@jdmitch flip and reverse this shit!
After going through a phase looking more like this: I still have all these parts so it might change back again when I get bored.
From a £30 F&F to a decent winter /2nd bike 8.6kg
That muddy fox is so awesome
Applaud all three
Ah yeah, that is excellent work
My first foray into geared road bikes many years ago. Frame is long gone now.
How I bought it.
How it was built up.
Final build before I sold it. I miss the frame, don’t miss 7 speed downtube friction shifting.
Cross post from CP: pinarello pos turned into a weird eroica-esque drop bar frankenbike.
Suppose this should kinda go here? Seatpost was actually down the bottom when I got it but I couldn't physically ride it that low ha -
Abandoned Univega Neuvo Sport
Looked fine at first glance but it needed new wheels, the quill was cracked, plus a bunch of other small things. Thankfully I had everything laying around. It's now a 2x8 friction with Nitto bars and quill, new-ish 700c wheels withe some plush 28mm tires and fenders off an old Phillips. Nice mix of ratty and functional.
Total spent: around $25
Chain length in that original photo is wild.

One parts bin build later
Currently being ridden by a friend. Tis nice to get old things rolling again :)
Had a lovely Max frame that got slightly dinged in a crash. Sent it back to Lee Cooper for new forks, new top tube and mudguard eyelets.
Built it up like this after the repair/respray and rode it for 6 years before selling it.
Oh I remember seeing this, really nice
🥲those poor forks
I've tried to buy this a couple of times.
I'm not sure where it is any more but it cracked at the top of the seat tube last time it appeared
