    You'll need to either locate a "Retro Ryders" reduced headset (currently out of stock). Or take a 1 1/8" headset and machine down the part of the bearing cup that slides into the headtube. That is basically all that the Retro Ryder headsets are. Your other option is to machine out the inside...

    That serving piece headbadge is gonna be awesome!!! Did you have to remove the headset because of length concerns or is it a 1 1/8 steertube in a headtube that was meant for a 1" steertube?

    @Captain Awesome , yes @Skydreamer is in Savannah too. We've only met during the Midnight Garden rides that BikeSavannah used to put on, but it's time that we met up in bike building mode rather than just bike riding mode.

    Need help identifying this bike

    Pretty certain that is a Schwinn. My guess is that it is pre-1948 since it doesn't match the serial numbers for 48-52. Also, the fact that it is a skiptooth indicates it would be pre-48 .

    Man, I was a couple of pages behind on your updates. Looking great. Since you are running the shifter cable down the seatstays, I am pretty sure you rotate the shifter axle housing to line up with that for a cleaner cable run?
