    Previous early bike chain stay discussion

    Recall seeing a conversation about the Schwinn or Westfield type early bikes, therein the discussion was quite good and rated the reasons to purchase a particular maker to build a Klunker bike from. One point very interesting was his review of straight opposed to bent upward rear lower chain...

    SOLD CWC frame Roadmaster Badge (repaint) $100 + shipping

    Realize you are aware of the down tube issue, as you know that can be a relatively simple fix or a nightmare. How badly is the bottom bracket affected, have you verified that the BB is not out of round from previous work? Still interested ... but Mike
