    Hello, Thought you all might like to see the prototype machine I built back in the summer. Now working on a small run of builds. Based on the old French velodrome racers from circa; pre first war as my inspiration. Mostly custom made parts in my workshop. with adapted period copper tank. Now working on the final prototype with upgraded 90mm drum brake to the front and coaster rear hub. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Tim Gunn[​IMG][/url]IMG_1548 by The Old Bicycle Showroom, on Flickr[/IMG]

    Nice!

    That bent tube makes it look a bit like a Iver-Johnson frame...
