Austin Polo Bike

Spotted this one behind a food co-op Austin, TX.  It's nice to see a polo bike that isn't just some hipster bike with color matching and an excuse to have "disc wheels".  The person who made this one has the right idea.  Fat tires, reasonable gear ratio, platform pedals.  It could use a hand brake, but what really sells it is the welded-on horizontal drop-outs.  Rear axl looks pretty damn beefy too.
