MO FIRE MO WING .. just build a cool bike and have fun
Nice wheelset, Ian!
nothing glamorous and no bribes. but gotta get the base stuff done. Brought the forks to work. and co-worker and I laid a quick bead of weld on the crack from over tightening the stem quill. I also used the big wire wheel at work to clean up as best I can the cranks on this bike and the bike I am building to auction for charity.
Note the crank on the left. That's the old Higgins crank. the copper is peeking through from the plating process. On the right, the Spaceliner (higgins) crank has no copper showing. 15 year difference (give or take) in manufacture date. pretty big difference in process. I love the copper look. kinda tiger stripe looking.
Since I'm in the buying mood ...
Oops!! that last one is for another forum
Put the Fat Franks on the wheels. Nice combo.
Tight fit with fenders though
Which brings me to this, the fact that I really like fenderless bikes.
I like the torn down simple look. So why did I buy this bike? Ugh, I don't know what to do now.
That's a tough decision, Ian The fenders look real cool with the Franks tucked in them, but they look cool without them as well If I had to vote, I would choose the fenders though
Skip, nice parts! I like the safety reflector
This is a direct order.
I'm putting a 24x3under mine! Get it done!
Oh Ian! better check out what I just scooped up from ebay!!!!!
You going to need any parts???
Sorry Skip, did not get same in a Color Flow auction!!!
CMAN "There is no such thing as spending time irresponsibly when it comes to bikes. "Honey will you take the garbage out?" (Sure that gives me at least 10-15 minutes in the garage with and excuse)
Worked on other stuff this weekend, but did take the time to pull apart the seat.
Needs a little bit of derustification.
