World Touring Bike

This is my world traveller, Winnie Mae. You can't find a bike like this anywhere in the world beacause I built her from scratch. When this started, I didn't know a bottom bracket from a dropout, but months of researching the best affordable parts, I put it all together in my garage - even lacing and truing my own wheels. Originally the goal was to have a bike that was 90% made in the USA, but turned out to be 90% "not made in China". Click on the parts of the bike for more info, and the yellow circle will take you back up to the top.
