Single Speed - light 24" frame

A 24" frame Single Speed/Fixed speed. SOLD

This bike has an unknown origin as I originally came as a standard geared bike.  The frame is made of thin steel tubing - may be Reynolds - that has very neat fillet brazing.  The rear dropout is 120mm and the bottom bracket is threadless that suggests a track frame.  However there are braze-ons to support front and rear gears.  There is one small dent in the left seat stay.  The paintwork is scuffed in places.  The single speed configuration seems to work best and the whole bike weighs around 21lbs and is a joy to ride with the extra narrow 27x1x1/8 ulta sport tyres.

The buyer suggests that its a 1970s Viscount with Chromo moly tubing see sheldon brown's page on this
