That would still amount to a stud . Secure it with red or blue Locktite; red being the stronger of the two as in never getting it back out. Being soft metal, install it snug (so the threads don't pull) and let the Locktite do the rest.Yes, that’s what I’m planning on doing. But not a stud. I was going to use a bolt so I can install it with some torque, then cut the head off and clean up the cut.
what would be a better product to lock that bolt in? JB weld? Lock tite? (Which color?) or something else?
That was actually a mount for a ginormous reflector! That bike had the biggest dang reflectors I’ve ever seen!I got the frame back from sand blasting today. When I bought the frame from @Rat Pilot it cane with a piece welded to the seat tube. I’m assuming it was to mount a rack.

some grinding and filing later, it’s gone.

There was also a hole to mount the chain guard. But the chain guard I have doesn’t need a hole. So I forced in an oversized screw along with some loc-tite, cut off the head, and it’ll look like it was never there.

Now I’m messing with a special funky hub that I need to get apart so I can take measurements and order spokes to build the wheels.
Had to wait for some parts, specifically ANOTHER disc brake assembly. I never got the first one to break loose, and a friend found a bike with another one. So, rather than go the easy route and just use a standard caliper on the back, I had to be complicated and stick with this hair brained disc brake idea.Update, update, update...
Come on bro,
what's happening with this bike?
Yikes. Having worked retail myself, I know very well how chaotic the holiday season gets, and with this year being what it is, I can't even imagine how much worse it could get. Hang in there CRASH, two more weeks and you'll be done with all the seasonal retail madness.I’m an operations manager in a retail distribution center. The holidays are our peak season, so the workload doubles as people buy a lot more stuff. It’s winding down now.
