Default Re: Heres what i've been workin on.....

Got the fork, headset and seat today, gotta do some cuttin on the fork to get rid of the excess at the top! one prob though, the fork and headset are 1 inch threadless and i think my headtube is 1 1/8th which surprises me for such an old bike. I put it together anyways to see what'd look like and if i could get it down low like i was hoping. Gotta hit up the local bike shop to see if they have a conversion kit or something to help or i might be searching for another triple tree... The fork, stem, dropout ext's and seatpost will all be powder coated satin black when i get all the fab'n done. Gonna chop and lay back the seatpost eventually... Finally got to put the wheels and tires on to see how it sits and i like it... Seats too high and foward for my liking... Anyways i've got the rear wheel as far foward in the new dropout as it'll go and i have about a quarter inch between the tire and seats stays, so im GOOD!!! As for brakes, i dont put anything on my bikes but coasterssss! they'll lock it up if i need to, and i hate all the cables and wires showing everywhere!!! I will NEVER put front brakes on ANY of my bikes because i like my front teeth!!!!! so dont even start, ive read comments before. Added more picks, the seat is a Felt hot wheels 68, super sweet!
