My first bike build and I’m pretty happy with the result.
Wanted to have a clean, neutral single speeder for the city. The motobecane frame (some unneeded parts were filed off) got a powder coating in RAL 7047 (the lightest grey I could find in the RAL colors). In shadow you see the grey color and in the sun you get a nice milky white.
As I was in the learning process of assembling bike parts it got pretty annoying with the the Campa 8spd clutch. Since there are no single speed cogs for it I had to find a roundabout way with the help of a guy from a bike shop. The chain guides hold the chain somewhat in position now so it won’t jump off.
And yap, the chain is too short…need a new one.
Hope you like it ;)
