Default Re: Moped Parts Being Used? What Works What DOESN'T?

No, its not a problem to get moped-hubs for 36 spokes, the most mopeds of the 1950's have 26" rims and 36 holes. You can even use whole wheels of the mopeds, but you need a frame and a fork that is a little wider than a regular bicycleframe. I used in this case a diamond shaped frame of a "Ballonrad", a 26" bike with balloontires made in the 1930's. I have not tried it yet, but i think a beachcruiser frame fits too....
