    Be careful welding galvanized metal as it produces harmful fumes that can really mess you up.

    I would put a piece of flat plate across the top following the chain stays and then hide an angle iron under it the full length that you were showing of putting it in between the stays. This should give you the needed strength and not ruin the looks.

    I got some work done on it, most of the work was cutting apart an old build that never worked out. So far it seems to be fitting together well. The crank will go on the frame about where it sit on the ground. Here is my thinking stool

    The Streamliner

    I do hope you just didn’t order an AC transformer as that will not work with straight DC power coming from the battery’s. You will need a DC to DC step down power supply.

    Tonight was really nice outside after work, but I didn’t get a lick of my build done. Been dealing with some type of head cold or something like that. At first I thought I might have inhaled to much welding fumes but I not sure about that. Hopefully I should get back at it later on this week if...

    What I plan on doing is take a bearing cup from a three piece crank set and welding it to a pipe that slips over the hub of the wheels I have to attach the freewheel to the rear wheel. This should work if the way I envision it all going together works out. Both the freewheel hub and 3 piece BB...

    I think the problem is they are to far out board from where they should be to look right.

    If either of them will clear the forks you will be using you can always widen the chain and seat stays without to much of a problem as I have found on a couple build I have done in the past. If you need some ideas I could show you what I did before.

    This freewheel cog should work out with this setup and give me an ok gearing... So I will have a 60T chainring, 12T freewheel & 8" wheels.
