Fixed gear, steel frame, no brakes. There are only so many ways to build a track bike. Yet inventive fabricators always seem to find ways of pushing preconceived notions, and creating something extraordinary.
This custom build from Belgium builder Antoine Hotermans of McFly Customs brings together sugar, spice, and everything nice, to create one of the coolest track bikes we’ve ever featured.
Images of this bike have been floating around for several months, but some of Antoine’s latest projects (featured further down the post) brought the bike back to our attention. You have to admit, even if it is a “repost” in some circles, this is a bike worth looking at twice.
Many of the custom finishes on the bike are components that have been scavenged from the scrap bin. For instance, these bar ends were once handles on a Citröen.
Custom engraved Campagnolo cranks
It’s a simple build anyone with access to a bike coop or eBay could replicate, yet it stands out.
Antoine is currently working on a host of other projects at the moment, so give his Facebook page at McFly Custom a follow to see more!
