This bike is a size 48 cm (small) with a recommended rider height between 4’10" and 5’3" (a test ride is recommended).
The frame is in very good condition and has been checked for alignment and there are no dents. The paint is what you would expect from a bike approaching 30 years old. There are several scratches and small surface rust spots. The paint has faded somewhat with time, giving the bike a striking vintage patina.
The singlespeed conversion was performed by a professional mechanic. The handbuilt wheels are Mavic A719 rims laced to Surly Ultra New hubs with DT Swiss double tapered spokes. The bike is rolling on 25mm Continental Grand Prix gumwall tires. The new Tektro brake calipers are controlled by Tektro levers with gum hoods.
The drivetrain is a ACS Paws 17t freewheel, matched with an steel 39t chainring. The FSA Gossamer crankset is turning on a new shimano BB. A new SRAM singlespeed chain keeps everything moving forward.
The cockpit features the original 3T quill stem and Champion 40cm handlebar, wrapped in Specialized S Works Roubaix tape in an eye popping Celeste colour. There is a new Ritchey two bolt seatpost topped with a Brooks B17 Short saddle in brown leather matches both the bike’s size and vintage aesthetic.
This is a one of a kind bike looking for a one of a kind rider.

DC Douglas Singlespeed Small/Medium $250
Here’s an early 80s vintage Douglas DC 7000. This bike has been cobbled together by a professional mechanic to bring you a realible bike with plenty of character.
This bike is a small/medium size (18" top tube, 29.5" standover) with 700c wheels and fast rolling road tires.
Based on what I could find these bikes were built by a Toronto area frame maker (possibly Nishiki) for Douglas Aircraft Corporation and offered for sale to their employees and Air Canada employees as well. The frame is of lugged construction with Columbus Matrix tubing
Some might say the paint is scratched and scraped, but in the bike business we call that patina. The frame is solid, with no significant dents or rust. The dropouts have been aligned.
This bike started out life as a drop bar road bike that I converted to single speed with 39 x 15 gearing. The Bontrager Satellite moustache bar that gives the bike plenty of character and offers a comfortable upright riding position. The Brooks Flyer saddle provides comfort to your posterior while riding on our ramshackle city streets and bike lanes.
Despite it’s appearance (theft deterrent) this bike is solid and will provide you with plenty of reliable riding. Just imagine how cool it will look in the bike rack of the Good Robot patio.
