Dust Mite & mongrel 3-speed

The new incarnation of the project bike has reached the state of being a bicycle, even if it’s not a safe bicycle to ride due to a noticeable lack of brakes. But it’s safe enough for a Dust Mite to ride, because plush animals don’t shatter like humans do.

The bicycle? All parts from the basement, wrapped around a SE racing Draft Lite (rebadged as a Bike Gallery “Workhorse”) frame that I found in a recycle pile on the street. I’ll probably have to fab some sort of shifter mount (maybe a thumb shifter on the tops of the handlebar?) but the brakes + brake levers, et al, all exist in the basement waiting to be used.
