I'm not sure how good the chrome is on that stem. You still want it? I'll ship it out if you do.

GUYS!
This is awesome... 14 pages I missed because of lack of time visiting RRB. Got a PM from Garagegoon wondering where I've been. It was just an hour before I left for London for a few days. What a cool city London is. The only thing is... I've spotted just ONE cruiser-type bike. Let me tell you, it isn't easy to ride a cruiserbike in a city like London because of traffic and hills and such, but it shouldn't be easy to ride fixies and singlespeeds either, yet 1 ou tof 4 bikes seem to be the latter... Not kidding. The fixie look is very hot in Londen.

Back to the real cool bikes ;-)
You all have a good thing going on here. Just browesed quickly through the post, but must admit I don't have the time to read it all. Didn't think the current shirt-design was 'good enough' for this project as being a bit boring. As in 'nothing special'... But maybe I'm wrong. I like the idea of The Clean Bike, but remember it kinda has to stand out from the crowd! Maybe numberplate(s) in the side. Big or maybe little. Or Numbers/lettering on thechainguard. Classic bicycle pinstriping. Not the fancy hotrod VonDutchstyle. Or maybe so. Has somebody come up with a name yet?? Hope I can contribute something for the build.

Just thinking along, and bumping this tread.
Have a good on fellas, Cheers!

That one will work... Would rather not have to paint everything white like the picture... Prolly stick with chrome... So that neck is fine.... 8)

I don't think I will be using pink. I was leaning towards gloss black to match the bike.

I picked up the stem and hub from 65rat this afternoon. Unless I encounter a problem, it should be ready by the end of the weekend. I'll see what I have for a stem bolt and wedge as well.


Thank you sir!!!

The kickback has been torn down and all the pieces look to be in good shape on the initial inspection. The parts are currently soaking to degrease in my solar heated vibratory parts cleaner. The hub shell has a few spots where the chrome has flaked off and some surface rust has formed. I will hit it with my fine brass rotary brush and see what it looks like after that.

Done with my hub scrub. Only a few problems :(

I got everything cleaned up out in the yard by the hose. I spread a shop towel to work on so I wouldn't lose anything. After each part was cleaned I placed in a cardboard box. Every single piece made it into the box and I proceeded to carry the box o' parts into the garage. Once in the garage the loose bearings decided to locate a small hole in the box and five of them hit the floor and vanished. Luckily I had a stash of bearings and found replacements.

The next problem came in the form of a worn indexing spring. It may still work but I would like to find a replacement if one could be found quickly. If not I may be able to make this one work. Part number 18 in the drawing and I believe they are the same part between red, yellow, and blue band hubs.

You can see where the tabs are worn in the pics. If I remember correctly they should be square on the end.

Lastly, the chrome on the hub in worse shape than I thought. I got a plan for that!
