The wheel I have is true and the hub and coaster brake are in good working order. A few of the spokes are a little loose but I believe they will tighten up no problem (I am currently out of town so I cannot be sure). The main reason for the sprocket adapter was just the fact that the spokes are from the 30's and I didn't want to put unnecessary stress on them. I want to shy away from a new wheel as I am trying to keep the patina/look that the bike has. Here is a link to my photobucket page if you would like to see the bike I am beginning with. Is there a way to modify the available adapters or possibly make my own? Thanks for the replies!
