Thanks for the info...nice blog.
if you havnt got your drum brakes, look at Husky bikes in the industrial section...everything for 75 dollars...but i believe youll have to change the fork...they have that too...what kind of tank is that...very good looking bike...I really like the look of the front drum brakes. See pic.
Does anyone know where I can get one of these? Are they significantly better than a vee brake?
