    My raggedy coffee table has held a few wheel lacing jobs as I sat around watching a little TV. (bachelors get to have bike parts in the house)

    Thick, bulging extremities on a thin, delicate frame . . . kinda like Popeye the sailor. I'm looking forward to seeing the final result.

    Just so @GuitarlCarl doesn't think I'm sleeping... Small work this week.. Good news rear hub didn't need to be drilled for 12g spokes ... Rim holes were tight .. Just a small clean up by hand....
    I did screw the lacing up :eek:
    Finished wheel updates soon.

    Ok... got all messed up with the wheel lacing.. not sure what I did wrong but going to go with a wheel set I have on hand.... one week to go.. not going to be as fancy or have any Fab work like the original plan but still looking to make a cool bike.
    Time is ticking
