for the great site.
is my latest project. (Bella TreKolori Coaster)
all started as a cheap, whatever-I-had-in-the-garage, coaster project.
I had the teal green frame -- which I thought had some nice lines
--, red wheels, and some goofy white fenders (they came with the
bike). I don't know why, but the whole Italian theme was still not
apparent yet (duh). Xmas maybe.
wasn't until I scored the stock red blackburn rack at CityBikes,
Portland, that the Tre Colori theme became an obsession. My next
addition is to build up an another red rear wheel using a Phil Wood
fixie hub a have laying around.
and now my wife needs a bike...
of the details:
Trek 510 frame (22.5") Late 80's/early 90's with original Campy
frame dropouts and cable routes
Cinelli stem, no name bars, Forte cheater levers, Campy Gran Compe
White Flite saddle (thanks Kevin), SR Laprade post
172.5mm Dura Ace cranks
