Streched Elect. Cruiser/board track/mid drive shifter
I'm noob here, but have built a few bikes, owned a few too, haven't ridden much since I got my DL, but I'm trying to get back into it, always liked riding as a young man.
Planned project is outlined in the title. Sort of.....
main Q for today: If I purchase a used bike, say off of craigslist, with decent components on it, and buy a custom frame I have picked out from one of the Ca. custom shops, what do I need to look out for Re: compatibility in swapping stuff over to the new frame? When I was a youngster, I dragged home all manner of junk, and built bikes out of the stuff, and sold them to my friends, I'll date myself here by saying that I was converting "stingray" style bikes to BMX when BMX bikes were rare... and nobody wanted the stingray bikes anymore. back then I was either extremely fortunate, or everything was pretty much standardised, I don't remember having problems swapping cranks, or headstocks from one bike to another. Any advice , or the suggestion of apropriate literature would be appreciated.
