Yea, I'm not going to sweat it too much, I know what I'm getting into. I want to rock back the fender in the front, but I don't want to do a lot of mods to the fork. The "plan" is to use the fork off a 54 CWC, fender and all. Because of the fender fit to the fork, and I want to leave the paint intact, it won't accept "KOTA-izing". Nothing is set in stone yet. The head tube drops down about 2"s so this should make up for the loss in height caused by the rake.CeeBee said:I'm not one to make too many suggestions on someone's direction, but on my "Lady Elgin Gets New Mantubes" build I almost made my geometry way off. Luckily, I thought to put a wheelset on the bike with it only tacked together. When I did, I realized the overall look was very awkward so I made some tweaks to all the new geometry before I welded anything solid.
I really like what you are doing here, and you may have already put wheels on to check out the final look, but I just wanted to save you a potential headache if you haven't!
I am guessing the BB is the same for most cranks to work, but I may be totally wrong. I am not talking from experience, so don't listen to me.JoKeR63 said:I rarely get questions answered in my own threads but I'll take a shot........
Anyhow, my experience with these ancient bikes is limited and I'm wondering if a standard crank will fit in this things unusual BB cups. If not I'm gonna' have to scare up a new crank.
