Starting with a 1950 CWC built Pilot, badged as Seattle Sporting Goods Co. Many of the spokes are broken or nearly so, and I have a wheelset I’ve wanted to use for awhile. When I first got it back in December, I did some test fitting: S-A 5 speed drum brake rear and a disc front. (it’s back to bare frame now, and I’ve not worked on it since,) Using a fork I have on hand that is 1” disc, a bit of a rarity. The original fork had a repair, Probably fine, but I wanted to use the disc brake wheel anyway. I’ve tried the custom scratch builds before and had a hard time finishing. So, I’m planning a simple refurb for this. It’s a Pilot, I’m a Pilot, aviation theme seems appropriate.
