So I''ve attempted a few singlespeed transformations in the last few years and definitely need to learn a lot! I like to take older style bikes, strip them back to bare metal and create a new look but still hopefully retain a bit of the old...of course this won't always work as I have way too many ideas in my head ! However so far so good.
This is my first attempt. Don't know what brand it was but it has a crack in the frame and I just wanted to create a show piece to go with an old classic car that I have:

I have just finished my second project which I'm in two minds of riding it or selling:

I am now in the process of stripping back an old Graecross road bike and creating my daily ride...will post pix soon.

Wow , two lovely looking bikes there, you obviously have a good eye for restoring.
To bad the blue bike has a cracked frame it looks sooo nice. But its all good practice, hey, some of my resto's may as well have a cracked frame as I barely ride them . Too many bikes to little time!
Look forward to looking at your next project.
Cheers

Thanks BurtO. I'm really enjoying it and trying to come with some cool color combos. Good to hear there are more people with "too many bikes" (as if THAT can be possible! :D ) Yep it's a shame the baby blue is damaged but it was just for a show bike so it'll always stay up on the wall on display.
