@GuitarlCarl is the Man!

Can't wait to see this painted and ready to ride.
They're rough but in the time frame we're in they might have to do... but IF they work out we can cut some better ones. I'm also hearing rumors of an epic photo, with 3 bad bikes from the Chicago Taildraggers!

Gave myself some buid time this evening.

Finally got it back down to just the frame.

However! Most of my time was spent problem solving and tool improvising to get that .... crank removed. Now here's the problem...

THAT is a ruined spindle in a sealed BB cartridge.

And I don't really have the money in the build budget to get a new cartridge and more so a BB tool.

So I'm not sure what I'm gonna do now.

Some things to think about.

Did you try a crank puller?
Yup

Crank is off, but spindle got ruined in the process.

I think my puller is missing the end foot bit, so I had to adapt it, first test on the non drive side ruined the splindle. Second idea worked fine on the drive side.

I might have what you need...
I think its a cartridge in a 95' Schwinn hybrid I have been robbing parts from.
