    Any way pedal cranks with slightly loose bearings in the hangers may not matter much. You don;'t pedal much ehhh! Just want to clarify for others, the bearings were OK from Azua, just not the pillows (holders, hangers whatever they call them), they are too loose and I put the shims in them with extra effort and now it is OK. The Whizzer Clone Sheave I have had for 2 or 3 years now I finally did grind away more of the bump where the circular sheave has a weld mark for butting the ends. It works a lot better. I may be looking to replace the adjustable diameter pulley and hope I could find an affordable one not made of aluminum like what I am ready to replace my second one. Where did all the good parts go?

    Tony I love this build. It has "the look". Always liked the bobber style. Sure was a lot of work, but came together well. It's amazing how many mods you have to do to make a part fit and do it's job.
