Start your RRB Build Off Journal here!
The new back end will be 4 1/2 inches wide and 9 inches longer...shuld look amazing with the huuuuge tire...You Live, you learn...I will never try to spread wide something that's 70 years old...
I got rid of the back 28 to fit it to a more casual standard 26...those coaster brakes are getting rare...so better fit it to the Cool size...and suffer the mess of fitting them...Fat is cool (except for ladies bottoms and guys bellys...)
Not to put a damper on your rebuild, but I think that would qualify as major frame modification. I would just keep the stock dimensions so that no one has a fuss about it.

dumpster diving since 1994
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.
I did'nt intend to break the rules...or the bike...hahaha...but it happens sometimes. Sorry about that! I just don't know how to move this to the Builds category...Bur if anyone wants to see the finished bike...just enjoy yourselves and don't vote for me...Might be out of contest but might also be really helpful...What about a Whoops!!! category???...Never tought something so cool would have some stiff rules...i'll just forget about the 1 000 000$ final prize and have some fun...maybe some of you should stay in their dumpsters...Let's just ride and have fun please...
