Nice! Sweet looking tribute. I'd happily ride that.
Is that a roller brake up front?
Did this start off as a ready made eBike or did you build it from components? If so, I don't recognize the drop loop frame. Loop part looks tighter radius than I'm used to seeing. What frame is that?
Whatever, this is nicely finished to a high standard and looks like a great ride.
@PeteMcP Yes, the front brake is a roller brake. The bike was made from a ready made bike, a Project 346 Joe. The Bafang electric drive and the head- and front lights and seat were attached afterwards.
I fitted a front roller braked wheel to one of my builds and I love it. Bought it from a retailer/wholesaler here in the UK who buys out bankrupt bike shops. Now he has no more. Searched everywhere and nor does anyone else. Can find the odd roller component - but never a complete unit. Hard to track down rollers these days.
Thanks for the roller brake links guys. The good news is I just managed to score an unused 26" mtb wheel/tyre with Shimano roller brake dynamo hub for a dirt cheap 'best offer' price from a UK eBay seller. Tyre will be surplus to my needs and will be replaced with a 26x2.35. Perfect combo to install on the vintage girder forks I just purchased.
