Martin Bike Nut

Look Ma, No Hands!
This was a fun project, but the frame is just a little too small for me.

  • upgraded wheels (which were damaged beyond repair)
  • replaced 1-piece crank with loose-bearing spindle BB and (beautiful!), vintage Shimano Golden Arrow (105) cranks
  • ditched front derailleur
  • replaced ~14-38t cassette with NOS ~14-22 (in gold color!); Suntour? Shimano?
  • replaced drop bars with OrangeVelo Porteur (but I don't really like these)
  • replaced Twin Stik with vintage Suntour thumb shifter
  • replaced old, heavy, worn original saddle with vintage Brooks
  • did some amateurish paint touch-up
