Default Re: My next custom build (maybe)

Still gathering parts for my next build. Using an old Bendix rear coaster hub, like I've never seen, and a large front moped brake. All laced with 1/8" spokes. Those should stop me nicely. Got some cool Kenda solid white tires that go with the red rims and the rest of the bike (flat black or gray). Found a great Messinger gray seat at the Long Beach swap meet a while ago. Still need to attach the Whizzer pulley to the rear wheel. I have a small 26 tooth front sprocket for easy starting and engine clearance. Also gives the bike an older look. Have to bend the pedal crank to miss the engine. Next step is to get the mounts welded onto the frame, make some tank brackets, weld the center double pulley pivot to the seat post, etc. etc. I'll keep plugging away until I have a pre-assembly.
