    I have a old beach cruiser. I need to attach the 44 t sprocket, a rear rack and fenders. as well as my coaster brake. I haven't attempted this yet but the bolt seems to be on the end as it is. has anyone had to get a longer bolt to go through the rear axle? And is that something that you can even do? Or is it all attached? leaving one to have to get a whole new hub? I am trying to figure it out now so i have all pieces on hand for my build when i finally get to get to it.
    does that make sense??
    Thanks!!.spr.

    if it doesn't fit, longer axles are usually available from a good bike shop for a few bucks. then you get to experience the joy of rebuilding a coaster brake.

    Welcome back, bairdco. A lot of people have been looking and asking for you. Did you see the thread in the tavern?

    I am fighting not to just bring my build into Venice Motor works to have them do it. I am having a brake/axle not working right problem. I will post it properly. This is turning into a real P.I.T.A. and my once lovely living room is now a bike shop. which is getting old quick. Wha wha wha.
