I'm building a classic 3 speed "gentlemans roadster" based on a Chinese Flying Pigeon PA-02. Still waiting on the bike itself, a rear rim, led conversion kit for the lights, Brooks B33 saddle, and a few other odds and ends.

Yes, those are cream colored delta cruiser tires from Schwalbe.......

To add a little more fuel to the fire, because of the typical conditions here in Seattle, I purchased a pair of L.L.Bean Maine hunting shoes for my "riding shoes". I'm sure I will be an object of mirth for many serious cyclists, but I'm used to it being a Ural rider and I'm secure in my manhood, so laugh away, its all good.
Put this over in the shiny things thread and you'll get much better traction with some helpful feedback and input. Good luck with the build!

Basically, its an elevated traffic circle for bicycles. Get em out of the intersection. Presumably, its a busy intersection.

Neat idea that probably won't ever fly here.
