Liberia Singlespeed

The little 49cm Liberia went home with a gal, today, as a birthday present from her boyfriend.  Grant bought my Raleigh Sprite/Clubman project, which was too big for me, last year and emailed me looking for a bike for his girl, earlier this week.

I swapped the the drop bars for one of the original Bridgestone Arc Bars (from a 1993 XO-3), installed a basket and converted the drivetrain to a singlespeed set-up.

I thought the white grips and seat gave it a bit of flair.  Some vintage mismatched tourist levers control the Mafac Racer brakes.

Here it is without the basket and kickstand, for those who appreciate the more streamlined look.
