If only you could do that trade today ... in reverse
Start your RRB Build Off diaries here!
O yes, that would be good. Our mule davis is EVIL but he keeps the cows safe so it's not all bad!
When purchasing from me, remember I live 15 miles from the post office.
Those are some seriously wide forks!
I mean Fugsley wide!!!
What tires are you gonna run on this beast!!!!???????
Fork looks really good. Great work!
The width wasn't really intentional as I planned to fab my own dropouts and mount them in the inside of the tubes but I had some cannablised fork parts I couldn't pass up. I have a front wheel with long enough axle just need to add spacers. I was going to use a pair or red "Tycoon" knockoffs I have on hand but I may go larger.
Fork is KILLER!

Began stripping the paint today. When ever I stripp layers of paint on an old frame I feel like Im going back in time.
There are scallops underneath the 60 years of rattlecan jobs.
My favorite stripper. Shes a little nasty but she does the job.
Such a nice day outside I threw some primer on the handlebars and forks
Those handlebars look HUGE!!!
Must just be the angle of the photo.
Ok so I decided to go with my Red tycoon knockoffs but the bright blue idea may have to go. Bright blue remind me of a soft color for a girls bike. I may be going with a dark gloss grey instead (battleship). With the look of the bike the way it is going it will look real tough with a darker color and the bright red tires. I still plan to add red pinstripes here and there to give it that antique motorbike look. May change the name too.
