    Looks like everyone has a board track build going on at one point in their cycling sojourn but me. The time is now for me to throw my vision to the track.

    This will a cool build for me because the original track bike I had got repossessed by the owner. I had been storing it for a friend.
    Looking at images online and here on the forum will give me all the ideas needed. Feedback a plus. Need a frame to start.

    A 1941 CWC "tall tank" frame will do fine. The frame is a straight bar, drop stand compatible with a cool patina.
    This frame is also in rms37's data base of "tall tank" CWC serial #. So far it's the earliest he's recorded produced in fall of 41'
    That's just too right. A frame with a prominence before I've even begun. Def mad perfection! WAKE UP! ur "BOARD TO TEARS 2"

    Using a fork from a 60's bike

    I distressed the finish and will use my Darts. The wheelset looks to match good enough
    Stem is from a Western Flyer BMXr with a steel gas line segment for bars.
    Grips are from a old set of hedge shears
    I had no badge for the cycle so I did what i could.
    Seat was with another project. Found a new home here where it will be recovered again
    The 45 degree lucky 7 put everything back out over tire
    Bobbed fender from a Schwinn 27 inch

    I like the way the head badge is flat and not curved along the tube. Now you just need to hand paint on the name.

    Phase 3 will be a mean fork
    Phase 4 will be drop bars
    Phase 5 will be tires or perhaps a tank. I dont know what the "tall tanks" look like yet?
    Phase 6 will be paint or a motor
