60cm Lugged Steel Gazelle

Saddle/Seatpost:
Brooks B67 Honey

Brakes:
Drums

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Weinmann Steel 28's with embossed brake sufaces. Schwalbe Delta Cruisers.

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Sturmey Archer 3 speed

Accessories:
Original Bell, Dyno Light System

More Info:
I call it the Caddy, or Tito Ortiz the Huntington Beach Bad Boy. Silly, I know. Ever since my first trip to Holland I wanted one. This thing is a beast. Heavy, sturdy, utilitarian, but classy at the same time. It was already in excellent shape when I bought it, but I changed the black tires/grips/saddle to brown, and did an overhaul on the hub. It rides like butter. I use it as the occasional grocery getter.
