This bike is the kind that started my interest in single speed bikes in 2005. Good Job!

Thanks! This bike started it all for me too. Because of the poor condition it was in when I found it, I chose to try out the fixed sensation due to a mangled derailleur mount. Pretty much instant love my first ride.
