I told him I was looking for a 26 inch coaster brake wheel.
Boom! He digs up a Kin lin with 11 gauge spokes. He found it on a 1940's girls bike and it had been painted baby blue. I did some searching and found that kin lin rims are pretty darn good.
I can't wait .... the parts are almost all gathered.
Good looking wheel, just get you a can of acetone and a NATURAL bristle paint brush and you should be able to get all that Baby Blue Paint off in no time.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
