My motive here (sorry) was to build a light, cheap, lugged, cro-mo steel-framed bike. I found the basis of that in a $40USD (NT$1178TWD) Motiv frame of the type sold at Costco, with double-butted Tange 900 tubes and aqua and white paint.
Sadly, the top tube was too short and at slow speeds I got too much toe overlap. Didn’t care for the aesthetics of the ‘ape hanger’ bar either and sold it for the parts. Total cost was $235USD (NT$6925TWD). For handlebar grips above I used crutch hand grips. Fixed Gear Gallery Post
