    When I first thought of doing this bike... I picked up this... but it turned into my buildoff bike... I would love to find another to build the Auction Bike... This Auction Bike is going to be super clean...

    Only mod to a frame like this would be the lowering and slight bending of lower bar.. Other than that it fits the bill... fork and all...

    Hey... I dig the snot outa those forks!!!! If you can build one I would be more that happy to mount it on a frame....

    I am going to try and pry a CWC frame from a friends hands... he has plenty stacked up but loves them so much it will be hard.... 8)

    I can sandblast & powder coat any items that you need coated. Satin Black??? My oven is approx. 36"x36", so if it will fit I can do it! I believe a 26" frame will fit.

    I've got a pair of 26" wheels off a Western Flyer, kind of rusty (ratty), but not rusted through, appear to be solid & could possibly be cleaned up some. Probably need to be trued. No missing spokes, but they are loose. Let me know if you are interested.

    Double Nickle ... I think on that RRB plate all we need is a nice clean oval piece of steel... I would like to weld it to the truss rods to make permanent... then I will paint it white post welding... I have a machine to print and cut out vinyle letters to place on after completion.....
