I will explain.. I have got this 1951 Rotrax and it was in a bit of a state. I had recently sold my Raleigh Single speed and NEEDED (more wanted if the truth be known) another SS. I have also wanted to do some special wheels, not quite sure what special but I had Kevin build be these... Stunning!
Please note the 3 cross, radial mix spoke pattern, this took a lot of convincing! Looks awesome in my opinion though..
Anyway, the bike needed to be nice enough to spend some money on but a little rough around the edges so I wouldn't feel bad riding it. So this is how the bike turned out. It has all of the original GB components: Bars, Stem, Brakes and Levers, although they are a bit battered. I think that adds a bit of charm though as this bike has come out of retirement after all. Here are the piks...
