Default Re: Just ordered my kit

Agreed it would look really nice on the old Raleigh which is a good quality bike. But by the time I retrofit it for proper brakes, replace the bearings in the rear wheel and put tires and tubes in it, it may be cost prohibitive...not to mention it needs painting too or the fact it has no suspension on it and it will ride rough as $h1t. For general riding the modern schwinn may be best. Heck...if this goes well, I have a Bolens weed whacker with a broken trimmer shaft (motor is good)I am considering converting...might put that on the greenie or convert it to an el cheapo outboard motor.
