Belt Drive wrap up...

I wrapped up Louis's belt drive conversion today.

I fretted over my ability to match the paint, as no one was forthcoming with the paint code info. I've run into this many times with frames that are manufactured overseas. It took a couple of hours, but I think I was able to get a very close match mixing by eye.

Here's a pic of the finished project...

and a video that shows the entire process for ya...

Buhnevici...the video is still up and functioning. You tube does adhere to country copy right bans, so it is unavailalbe in some countries, sorry.

Here is another posting that has better step by step info though... http://groovycycleworks.blogspot.com/2012/02/belt-drive-gatehow-i-do-it.html
