Default Re: frame recommendation help

Yes, please post photos. I've been contemplating extending the dropouts on an oddball build ( Tomos/AMF Roadmaster is the name of the build thread ) so that I can use 26" wheels on the bike. There is plenty of height room, but not length, as even a 24" wheel runs out of room. Extending the dropout/ axle mounting plates would answer that problem. I'm wondering how you did yours.
Somewhere on this forum, perhaps a year ago, someone said they bought plates made for that purpose which bolted on That's what I'd like to find and then also do some welding to make sure nothing comes apart at speed. By chance do you know of a source for such plates? I may have to make something up from scratch if I can't find a source for buying them. Thanks,
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
