    With entry one waiting on parts and my garage fairly sorted out, let's build another bike. Schwinn Scrambler early eighties, I've got the correct fork... But no other original parts... I've had this bike rolling before but as you can see, not at the moment. This one gets painted so we'll see what happens.[​IMG]

    How many of those mags do you have laying around? They're pretty sweet looking. Heavy?

    2 pair. Mongoose mags, some kinda alloy, seem light. They're straight and that's all you can really ask for with old mags. I'm probably gonna switch sets between bikes. I had the black set on the Schwinn before and it puts the 14 tooth cog on the Long BMXXX (Mean Streak) and the 16 tooth on the Scrambler.

    I need to get another picture since I have the black mags back on the Scrambler. But here's the game plan. I want to create a side hack for it. I've got a few different forks and I think one horizontal will be the mount for the wheel. I'm wondering how tough it will be to come up with a design that allows the wheel to lean left or right with the bike when it turns. Otherwise, hard right turns without a hack jockey will be interesting...
