I seem to recall someone in Germany was making adapters so this type of Shimano hub so they can be used with an offset rear cog...
Would love to see how they did it.

Without a wider shift hardware on the wheel, i couldnt figure out how to engineer it without wire or housing dragging on teeth.
Impressive driveway. Did you ever do a Mopar themed bike?
My wifes car is the speedster of the two. My little 273 4bbl doesnt compare to the new hemi. Just brings the old school style...

Sure, have done a few mopar themed...




One of the three is still close to what the build.

Did I see a wicker frame jig in a couple of your pictures??? Nice.


Merle. :crazy:


Merle, that would be a crazy jig for sure. Possibly made by Jigs for the Islander... Hehe.

No wicker jigs here. Maybe it was the wicker table or chair on the back porch.

This round, the frame is being eyeballed. And critically compared to square. Cant get too twisted while working on it else odd angles show up because my eyes get crooked...

The tooling for my big jig isn't complete yet. Have the box attachments, and still need to build the arms. One past buildoff i spent crattive energy there rather than building the bike...

Ali wkc on FB is the guy that makes adapters. Unfortunately not very good in English, he said. Although if you just want to order one you will probably make the communication work.
I found some pictures though, when I get home I will post them.

By the way you don't need to weld an attachment point for the roller brake. A simple bracket for a coaster brake is enough, the principle is the same.
