The Speedbowl, part 3

 

The new 23" wheels arrived from the machine shop and Fred completed the bare metal buildup. Everything was taken apart again and all the parts were painted, polished and powdercoated. Fred had only 1 week left to finish the bike and get it to the European Championships in Mainz............

 
 

Fred described the colour to me as "dogshit brown" , he thought people would probably not like the colour but he said he wanted to do it anyway! Me, I like it alot.

Check out some of the details on this bike, the 3 metal gussets in the frame under the gearbox match the lower tree of the forks, front and rear brakes are both operated with the footpedal through a proportioning valve, front brake calipers hidden in the fork legs, totally unique front suspension, oil in the frame, battery hidden in the fueltank...
