    Columbia Newsboy score

    Nice find. Agree with Mr Thunder, a non-cantilever cruiser would be a good thing to have. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk

    What have you been riding lately?

    Took my OP Roller out for a test spin one evening last week. Forgot to go over all the nuts and bolts after swapping parts around on it. Sitting at a stop sign, I was leaning on the handlebars and suddenly they swung around to the right. I lost my balance and down I went. Had to get back up...

    Opie

    Another revision of the truss. When I get where I like it I'll pop rivets the pieces together and paint it all black. Except the springs. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk

    Has anyone made a trike out of a Sears Flightliner/Spaceliner bike?

    Nexus Suicide Shifter

    Here's one I made using a Shimano grip shifter. It's a little more elaborate than most homebrew shifters, but it's solid. Can be made to work with the 3 speed grip shifter too. I started this on a 3 speed then decided to use it on a 7 speed bike instead. It does take some time and patience as...

    How can you vinyl wrap a frame?

    It would probably be easier to use Plastidip or similar spray than a wrap if you don't want to lose the original paint. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk

    First Build Advice

    Wheels can be a problem on a low buck build. I wanted to put a 3 speed coaster brake on a bike I paid $35 for. After a year and a half a bike showed up on FB Marketplace that had one with nice aluminum wheels for $40. Not sure you want to wait that long though. How bad are the original wheels...

    Opie

    I keep playing with the design of a fork truss that sort of looks like a springer ever since I tried it on my RRBBO13 bike. This time around, I figured out a way to get some springs on it. So now Opie is my faux-springer guinea pig I'm thinking it still needs some work. Anyway, the rest of...
