Joanna - Lotus Fixed-Gear Conversion

I love the aesthetic of vintage track bikes, but don't have much cash to throw around, so I did what I can! Picked up components by hand-me-down, salvaged, or lightly used. Minus the Brooks spent ~$175.00. Light, quick, fun. Can't ask for more. Big thanks to my dad on this one!
