The BMX guys mentioned 2 headset models that clear the 1.125 steerer tube.
2 minutes with $10 HF air die grinder is much better, Thanks.

Schwinn had some of the best chrome, easy clean up for re-sale.
I would hold on to the Rear wheel. Shelden claims they built some
of the strongest wheels ever. He must have never seen Worksman.

Are you talking about reselling the fenders? I might do that, if there are any fenders on this they will be plastic, from a mountain bike or dirt bike.
Trying to figure out the simplest lighting system.
Too bad I don't want to use hte rear wheel because it has a coaster brake. Or the front, since there's no disc hub.

My mistake, your new wheels should be fine.
Per you pic, I outweigh you by over 100, always truing wheels.

No aluminum on this bike, everything that is shinny is chrome.

If your rims are OK you can get drum hubs and spokes for less than $200. I'll be doing it myself when I pick up this project, which was stretched to look like mine..

Seems like a good jackshaft disc brake kit! Likely really strong too.
AFG mini hub $8.25

Just cut the outer edge off to make a 4ish inch disc. Bolts right up to the mini hub

Ebay mechanical disc caliper $7.29

You can build your own set up for so much cheaper :)

It's come down to these three bikes.

I have some spare bike parts I will be upgrading any of these frames with. The question is, how the heck do I know if the 212 will fit in any one of them?

Help?
Definitely the Genesis 29" IMHO. It shows some good potential for the 212 predator. Would look sweet with a 29" suspension fork, a bobber style saddle right above the rear tire and upgraded aluminum mag rims. Just a starter thought, of course the final results are just as endless as your imagination. (and your budget of course) :)
