Default Re: Felt Tires - Thick Brick or Quick Brick? Chain Rubbing?


I'm about to start my second build and am trying for the 60's-70's small dicplacement Italian cafe look; think motobecane, bultaco...that sort of gig. On my last build, pretty much a stock bike with a 49cc, I learned that to get a bicycle to look like a purpose built small motobike, I'd need a beefy crusier frame, 66cc min., thick tires and custom tank/seat pod/clubman's or clip ons to get there. DId you buy the base bike with triple tree or install yourself? I'd love to see where you ended up on this project as I'm about right where you were here in '08.
