Picked this up last weekend. Hoping to build it up as a SS daily runner. Lists at 26.5 lbs. Rides nice. Funny story about this bicycle, the guy I got it from (Andrew) was given it by Jimmy Rankin (Canadian country and folk artist) Jimmy was back in Halifax from Nashville cleaning out his storage locker . It was too small for Andrew so I ended up with it. Thanks Jimmy.

Current Stage Info:
This bike is set up for single speed light touring and or commuting. The rear spacing from the factory is 126mm, so the rear hub spacing is a 120mm track FF hub. So the conversion was simple. Front is 110 and has the original crowned Fork. The paint and decals are in excellent shape.

I thought I found one with great paint until I saw this - very nice. FWIW, I was able to mix some nail polishes to match really well. Not that you need it. I dig what you have done. It makes me wish I would have gone more black than white but I got a good white wheelset for 50% off so I rolled with that theme.
