I did not use any steel wool in my bikes, or JB Weld. I'm not sure, but I think they are trying to help the sealer bridge the holes. I just used masking tape across the holes, and it worked fine. There is a small hole that is blind behind the seat post, where steel wool might help, but I just put a little more sealer in that area. Hopefully guys that used steel wool will describe the benefits of it.

Major thread drift BUT: ( sorry OB ) do you mix JB and the steel wool togather as a matrix / paste or pad the hole with S wool and JB over it? What?

I stuffed the holes then mixed the JB, warmed it with a hair dryer (it helps thin it some) and put it over the steel wool. There is probably a 1/2" plug of JB in my seat post tube.

The Caswell dries into a thick plastic that is still flexible. It is a very heavy duty product.

COOL! Felt colonoscopy! Thats Awsom! Thanks OB Im sure many have wondered what it really looks like in there. I'm going to carefully study this and see if I gain any further insight or ideas.

I did a Felt Twin and I used the steel wool and the JB weld.
I used a camera to see and a grabbing tool to do the job, fairly easy cause I saw what I was doing.
I used the steel to fill the cavity and the JB to add half inch of body to the area.
Then I used the Poor 15 kit to finishing the process.
I didn't know the product that Oldbiker is using. but just for the safeties, I'll do the wool steel again.

I have some pics on my album
Regards.

OK! Im a going for it! OB; I just made a PayPal payment and "checkout" didnt add anything for shipping. Just took me to PP. Let me know if I owe $ for shipping. I will be documenting a Felt Twin build with a 49cc HS once I have most of the parts assembeled.

We sell all parts needed to put a 1903 together and other aluminum framed Felt cruisers. The 1903, and I think all the other bikes with that frame have been discontinued by Felt. Some times you can find one though, on the internet. That is a great frame, hope they will bring it back.

I cruised thru the Felt site earlier, they have lots of 1903 frames. Do any of you guys' products work on the steel frames?

We currently don't make parts for the steel frames. I like the aluminum frame because it has a bigger tank. Steel is cheaper in cost so I think they like selling those. I know they show the 1903 on their website, but check with any dealers to see if they are available any more. Motostrano sells a lot of Felt bikes on the internet.
