Finally got the front tire today, a 24" x 3.0" (real width 2.5") and installed it on the rim. Man it is a killer look on the bike.

Built the Truss Rods today out of 1/2" steel tubing and they came out good I do believe. To bend the steel tubing I heated the area I wanted to bend until it was red. Then I bent it a little bit and applied more heat until red again and bent some more. I did this until I got my desired bend.
