I gathered some parts after receiving a broken wheelset from my neighbor.

The wheelset is from a 28 inch citybike and looked quite good (rusty nipples, but still nice). My neighbor said he couldnt fix it since the rear wheel locked up.
It has a Velosteel coaster brake hub. So I removed the guts and found out that a piece of string managed to get past the dustcap and got in the brake side bearing.
I cleaned, oiled and greased the Czech steel hub and it runs like new!

I decided to use it in a spare parts project with my "electric bike" aluminum frame:
A nice way to make fun of E bikes ;)

The parts so far:
28inch wheels. To be painted black with a spray can.
26inch front fork (it fits!). For a little aggressive stance.
59cm early E-bike frame. Sparta Ion.
Space klunker old handlebars.
Threaded stem adapter.

Pictures of the mockup:

I am thinking to cut the piece underneath the bottom bracket (This is where the battery normally slides in), but that would mean a future battery would not fit.
And to put speed holes in it.

What are your thoughts? Picture:

Other ideas:
Paint the frame black and put blue, red or green tires on the bike.
At least a bit fatter tires!

And the rear dropout is 150mm.... (boost) so I will have to think about a solution with the 120mm Velosteel hub and its 155mm shaft.

Thanks for looking and/or suggestions!

That is such a strange frame. I think it would look really cool with mustache bars.
