Welcome to the fold Mike ! will find most of us able and willing to help anyway we can....after all that's how a lot of us learned as well.......
The Cranbrook is an excellent bike to do a first build on due to it's simple layout and ergodynamics but you really should get a front brake on it....most of these bikes are not built to stop you at 30 MPH !
Good luck Mike!
