One thing I had not thought about was that these modern wheels have bigger diameter axles. I should know better, but forgot about that till I went to put the front wheel on. Oops! I had to open the slot up a bit with my rotary tool. The tank seems to have gotten a little warped. I am still messing with it to try and close up the bottom seam. Doesn't look bad though.
I'll try to post a better photo next time I have it outside. I want to add a nice headlight and tail light. Other than that, maybe a rack or two, but it's pretty much done. Rides super smooth.
I will probably change the tires to white walls eventually. Right now it has 26x2.125 schwinn typhoons on it. I kinda want to put these back on my bike after I paint it.
