Hawk Tornado single speed conversion, Swanston St, Melbourne

It's an interesting way to convert a roadie to a single speed. Not how sure the rear D works as a chain tensioner.  If anyone knows what the bolt on the front fork is for besides a pannier rack let me know. 


  1. G'day,

    The bolt on the the fork is a dynamo mounting for old school headlights. There is an L shaped bracket that bolts onto the fork and the dynamo slips on to it. Malvern Star used to have them on their forks in the 1970's (Superstars and Skidstars,etc.)

  2. Cheers for solving the mystery James and adding some valuable info to boot. Very much appreciated.
