fixed - round 2

Took the "gruppo" off my '82 Peugeot and tossed it on a 70's Gitane TdF frame. Someone already hacked off the RD hanger so I don't feel too bad turning it into a fixed gear machine. Still need to replace the chain ring on this obsolete 122 BCD crankset, I've got a 47 tooth Stronglight coming in the mail. I did end up moving the chainring to the inside of the crank spider making the chainline almost perfect - the ride is a LOT less noisy now, especially with a new chain... More pics here:
