This bike turned a lot of heads. We bought it from a friend of my father’s, the same friend who sold us the Women’s Schwinn Sprint blogged earlier. It was bought as a frame along with many other bikes being sold in a sort of package deal.
We werent sure which direction we wanted to go with it but decided a sleek and classy single speed would look best.
We initially installed a redished vintage wheelset, I believe a set of Weinmann rm19 single wall’s.
We had several people inquire on the bike but decided to honor the first inquirer. In the ad we mentioned that we had a second wheelset that could be used on the bike if the person wanted a flip flop hub. The second wheelset was a pair of white walled Aeromax wheels that gave the bike a more contemporary feel. She wanted a fixed gear set up so we went with the Aeromax set. It turned out to be a beautiful set up. I really wish we could find another Gran Prix frame to build similarly.
