I saw the bike in Favoured Fixie 6 again recently and had a short chat with the owner.
the beautiful paint job is covering up an old eitehr ten speed or 3 speed frame from back in the day (much like what I'm converting)
Instead of converting his back wheel, he simply had fixed wheels made, which seems to be the best option (I suppose that means I have to wait for the money of course).
Also, since taking the picture that is up on this site, he has replaced the front fork.
So picture it with a different front fork.
sorry I've no example.
