Sorry guys, not keeping the yellow...it was a 50 mph paint job and I have something else in mind. The wheels are done! Found some nice tires at a local LBS with a tread pattern that goes with my inspiration.
Wheels are done!
I like the number thingy on the front--are you gonna do a mini windsheild, too?
What brand & size are those tires? I like them.
What make is the frame ? I know it looks like a typical cantilever frame, but I noticed a bracket welded on for the coaster brake lever, instead of a strap like every other coaster brake bike I've ever seen. Smart design.
Should be another sweet bike when it's done...keep up the good work!
I am a bikeaholic. I am addicted to bikeahol.
Yes sir, I think it's called a quill adapter or something like that. I've had it for some time and never used it until now. The frame is almost bare metal, I polished it for about an hour by hand and that was after trying to get the same consistency throughout the whole frame with a wire brush wheel thingy. I also removed some unsightly tabs and smoothed everything out with my 4 1/2 inch grinder with a flapper wheel and a cutting disc. Next time...I think I'm gonna paint. I chopped both fenders to give it the bobber look and notched the forks to lower the front end without bending the forks. I cleaned and repacked all the bearings but I didn't take pictures or I would've gotten grease all over the camera. Here's a pic of my mess AND almost done!
May the schwartz be with you!
