    Nice looking headlight for city use

    Trying to figure out a battery powered headlight for use around town at night that doesn't look ugly. I don't want a light that look like the standard battery headlights like this. I also don't think a classic cruiser style headlight would look right. One like this. I like the Rindow...

    24x3 tires on a 26in cruiser

    Will a 24x3 fit on most vintage 26in cruisers? Also are there fenders that would cover this wide a tire? I have an idea of what I want to build next.
