A customized "Hunter Custom"
Here's a very old picture - but you get the idea... The seat is in much better condition and I have adjustment for my rear dérailleur - and I have safety features now, like brakes (front only)
I've also removed the mid chain guide (the original dérailleur), the kickstand (at that time, it secured the added brace bolt) and rear brakes that weren't anywhere near the rear wheel
It's heavy, so I feel a grade a bit more, but the momentum it generates on a flat is nice (especially during a draft opportunity) and it carries cargo and the occasional person in reverse tandem like you wouldn't believe (I just never have a camera on hand during that time :/)...
Oh, and no coast down
I imagine it would lower my top speed -- it's the tail end that matters more anyway
This is a mod for comfort
