    Not to derail, but I've got a pair of Chucks that I graduated college in, got married in, and have taken to Nepal with me. At 8 years old, yes, they are ratty!

    Good luck with the build...gotta love $20 bikes!

    Sorry guys but I have run out of parts a money, and this frame is vary different so I cant fined a front wheel that will fit in the fork for the life of me, it's like a old motorcycle fork so I need a wheel that has a really short axle and it need's to be for free, and on top of that I used the last of my spending money on a set of fat tire fenders that don't fit on the frame, so I'm dropping out of the build off sorry :(

    can you crimp the fenders to fit? or cut the axle down to fit the fork?

    I would just grind out that to create a regular dropout slot like the other side. I can help you if needed.
