    Hi, My name is Mark, and am about to start my first project, I picked up an 1970's AMF Roadster in fairly decent shape, and have just started to break it down to determine the quality of the parts, once my motor arrives, I will begin to build it back it, up. Not sure what to excpect this first build but am looking forward to it. Here is a picture of the frame that I am going to try and use.

    Plenty of room for a China girl motor in that frame.

    So, just wondering for a little advice perhaps, I've been reading about wheels and tires, and am not sure wich route would be best for this build, currently the bike has 36 spoke, 26 1 3/8 tires, but the frame wont allow for a larger width tire and the sprocket, so i guess the question is should that be ok, or should i get a new fork and have slightly larger tire(width) in the front,( i remember from my bmx days, i usually rode with a larger width in front), should i go with different rims besides the 36 spoke. Just wondering for some opinions, thanks
