The wheels are just placeholders and here's where it all slows down. I need to lace my wheels to get what I want and I don't have the front hub or the rear rim.

Looks like you made some good progress on day one, Carl. Like the frame and theme. Those fenders are cool. Will they make the cut?

RaT oN!

I got to checking clearances...
I borrowed the QuickBrick and rim, off of my 41' Elgin that @SlyRed built. It's only a 26x2.125 BUT on a 57mm wide rim it really opens up. So I'm thinking of going with a 57mm rim flat black, so I'd better check to see if it fits eh?

No problemo. There's more than enough room! Now I wonder what Duro's cream Goodyear/Diamond tread will look like opened up on a 57mm rim? That tire has a bit of a shoulder, not quite a pie plate profile but in that realm.
I also swapped out my crank and ring for a mag style. The 3 Arrows ring I had on it was for a 5 speed derailleur setup and I need to run the wider chain to drive the kickback I have. The crank I have here is beefier too. Early BMX I think, and like new. I also found some bow pedals in cream.
