Swapping straight bar for drop bars

@stw, Many town bike conversions have IGHs and a few others. That chrome bike was a Public D8i, d-frame, eight-sped internal. I painted the motor with engine paint and put on a 50-t chainring and polished arms. The newer builds are a lot cleaner. I will drop the rear cog to 16-t and often use a half-link chain for strength. The better builds will have as few as three wires on the handlebar with no visible connectors. To find that Condor II bar I just went to Google Images and searched for Gravel Bar. Soma products looked attractive. The Chisel had a Kilowatt nominal expenditure rate motor that lasted three weeks until upped its fuel economy to 350 with peaks at 820.
