    I need a cablestop for my shifter,anyone know where to get one??

    Also I know my chain is loose,I need a halflink to make it work.
    I just had to give it a spin,I have my old chain soaking in vinegar...


    The reason I was trying out apehangers is an idea I have...
    I plan on making a wheelie bar out of that pile of frames I have in a picture
    earlier in this thread...

    I'm thinking of making a place to put drop bars on the wheelie bar so I can
    ride to the dragstrip in comfort...Then once there put the "go fast" drop bars on...

    Kind of a run what ya brung thing.......Stupid?????

    I think with the apes I need a front tire that matches the back......But then my whole Gasser bike theme would be gone...
    Guess I could also mount my front race tire on the yet to be made wheelie bar along with the go fast drop bars....

    My mind is going crazy!!!!!

    I went to the bicycle boneyard here in the city today and dug up a makeshift shifter cable stop..
    I'm still on the hunt for a better one..
    I've never rode a 3spd hub bike before...Pretty darn cool!!!!!

    I found a bike with a cool old raised white letter skinny tire on it,but when I dug
    it out it was just too far gone....The hunt continues for an era correct looking front tire...


    Now I need to get to working on wheelie bar..Not for riding wheelies mind you..
    It's for the drag bike effect...Also the reason I set the seat back,for more "hooking up" action....


    Also saw an old Firestone bike with a cool springer on it,now to save my $ for it...

    Like your build man. A fellow drummer. My music room used to be crowded (or so I thought) then a couple months ago I started building bikes. Now I'm tripping over fenders (the bike kind) to get to my Fenders (the guitar kind). Life is good!

    Thanks for the nice comments guys..Means a lot to me,especially me being new to all this...
    I do have a plan to use both sets of bars,I got some figuring to do...

    Apestanger, i'm fortunate to have a music room and a small garage that my wife leaves alone.
    She felt bad having her dresser repaint project in the garage this week..
