Amy's New Ride

The rebuild is finally over. I present to you Amy's English 3-speed. Everyone should have one. This was a mainstay of bicycle transportation from the 30's to the 60's. It comes complete with whitewall tires, full fenders, and a hub generator, headlight, and taillight.

I apologize if any of you have had to listen to me tell you about the 7 millimeter saga. For those of you that haven't heard it, the front rim was 7 millimeters bigger than the back because they were different brands. Because they are from the 60's, you can't get get whitewall tires for the front wheel size anymore. So, I ended up finding a rim that is same size as the rear and building a wheel myself. I laced in the Sturmey Archer DynoHub and it turned out ok.
