Hello, and welcome back to another episode of "What the heck is this guy doing anyways?" On today's show, we're starting off slow and laying out some of the bear necessities of this year's build. Starting with an unknown year Firestone Super Cruiser, we're going to cut, slash, shave, mangle, and otherwise barbarise and mutilate the frame and fork to fit a set of 85mm 26" Kenda Flame wheels, and stretch the wheelbase from a paltry 43 inches to a much more manageable and comfortable 72 inches

Got the spring side of the fork widened by 1 1/4" today

Here's some pics of the operation

Tack welded a piece of metal to the spring rods

Then cut the rods off

Here is the gap (of Rohan?) 1 1/4" is a pretty significant gap, so in addition to using a heavy wall piece of tubing, it's also got a piece of solid round stock going down into the legs for additional support

Take your time and triple check that the spring rods are going back in the right place, then burn them on with the fiery passion of a thousand burning suns.
