First Fixie

It all started with this bike (2008). My father's '70s road bike. On this bike, he rode his races. The frame is a "Springfield" and built by hand in Haarlem the Netherlands. The frame (with Campagnolo dropouts), fork, headset (Campagnolo), seatpost (Cinelli), seat (San Marco), stem (Cinelli), bottom bracket and crankset (Shimano) are all original. In retrospect, I should not have butchered this bike into a fixed gear. But hey, no pain no gain.
