Progress

I've spent the last two weeks trying to source bit and pieces for my fixie build. I've also given the frame a touch up with enamel spray paint. So far I've spent $55 all up and my aim it to build it for under $200 (what most fixianadros will pay for their brooks saddle). The biggest cost of all is going to be in the wheels.

I used to lust over Apollo IVs as a youth, ended up with a III which I recently taught myself how to braze. It has come up pretty well - http://riderredux.blogspot.com/2007/08/apollogy-project-ready-to-roll.html

Your frame probably dates from the early eighties. Have fun with your fixie build.

cheers

Hey Grant,
Thanks for the info on the frame. I hope my rebuild goes as well as the appology project.

Cheers
