Moustache and fixin

Jan 05
A potential project
Somebody has previously converted this to fixed gear in the past, but rather on the cheap: The shifting system has been removed wholesale.
Instead of making any alterations to the wheel, the hub and cassette have been spot-welded together thus preventing them from moving in separate directions. This seems to pose no particular problems save the aesthetics, but unfortunately the mudguards rub against the overlarge tyres, preventing rotation.
It’s hard to love perhaps because the colour is so drab, maybe someday somebody will come to fix it?
