Well...The Repco Spectra is a fairly nasty piece of work (stamped dropouts etc) and ordinarily you'd use it as a garden decoration but as a fixie candidate they're not bad (my ghetto fixie is a red/white/black spectra). It's no worse than than the Repco single speed you can buy brand new in Big W at the moment.
You can buy a Repco Preset, brand new from Big W for between $79 and $99 so to pay $125 for a Spectra in poor condition sounds just a tad rich. On second thoughts using these gas pipe creations for fixie conversion is not a bad idea as it might save a quality bike from a fate almost as bad as death.
