Motobecane Fixed Gear/Single Speed Roadster, 23"/58cm Lugged Steel - *SOLD*

Motobecane Fixed Gear Roadster, 23"/58cm

The base of this build is a Motobecane Grand Touring frame made of lugged steel. Built up as a fixed gear or single speed roadster with many nice components. Features a freshly handbuilt deep-v wheelset that rides smooth and strong with a cross pattern in the rear and radially laced up front. Features Porteur handlebars with the grip area wrapped in cloth handlebar tape that has been treated with 3 coats of amber shellac to give a beautiful and classic honey brown, which matches the saddle perfectly. Set up as a fixed gear with a 39/14 ratio, can become a coast-able single speed by adding a freewheel to the flip/flop hub. I can swap out the chainring for a larger on if you prefer a single speed. This bike is ideal for riders 5'10" to 6'1" give or take. When inquiring, please indicate if you prefer fixed gear or a coast-able single speed.
