Rebuilt Schwinn Impact ala Rivendell

I've been rebuilding bikes again as a hobby, mostly all in my frame size, meaning large frames. This one is a little small for me. Rebuilt as a Rivendell-ian drop bar mtb all-rounder sort with Nitto Dirt Drop stem and Noodle drop bars. Big fat Schwalbe Big Ben tires for a cushy flat-free ride.
Single speed for Chicago's terrain, would be a blast out on the gravel of the Des Plaines River trail.

Bags and bags.

While I still build my own bikes, and once and a while will sell a complete bike, I've pretty much given up on rebuilding bike for selling. 
My bike attentions have turned to bags this past year.
