Hi All,

just thought I'd throw up some pics of my recent build.

it's a kuwahara frame that I picked up, removed all excess cable guides etc. stripped, painted, added a heap of road side parts (basket/rack/bars/head stem etc.)
pretty happy with how it turned out.
running a 700c wheelset with coaster rear for shopping centre skids.

Your bars are upside down.

Nice job. What gear ratio will you be using? Something light no doubt if you will be carting a load of groceries.

I have the same fleabay special repair stand. Pretty decent for the price although the main pole keeps slipping out of the leg mount bit when I pick it up. :roll:
