Seems like 1 shim for the Front Derailleur, the silver part is just the seat-tube with paint taken off (drilled on back side)
What I'm really intrigued by is the use of a architect's scale cut off and used for both the front of the seat-post and the front-side of the stem/steerer situation. Was the intention to have engineering support (pun absolutely intended) and 'aero' because the triangle is pointed outwards???

It looks like they drilled through the frame and used a hose clamp so they install a top pull mtb front derailleur. I think this bike wins the Freaks Award of the Year!

Those brake pad extensions... is this bike using a 26" rear wheel?
This is horrifying in general.

Did I read the downtube correctly that it's a Viscount? I wonder if it has the original "death fork" still on it.
