my new old bike

I found this 1985 Miyata 310 in a shed where it had been for nearly 15 years, covered in a tarpaulin. I decided to turn it into a fixed or single speed, as I have been getting back in to cycling now that I live in Fitzroy and needed a challenge.

First job, a new tyres, pedals, saddle, a back wheel, chain and a BMX freewheel.

Next, handlebars & brake cables.

See the freaky chainwheel. It's a biopace eccentric chainwheel. I am in the market for a normal round one.

Pedals from the bargain bin and the local bike store.
