    Ok, I've been doing my research and I am slowly unravelling the mysteries of inconsistent tyre sizing systems, but some things are still doing my head in.

    For example: The bikes in the picture above; is that a 24x3 tyre on the rear and if so, is that still a 26" rim or is it actually a smaller diameter rim than the front? In other words, does a 24x3 tyre go on a typical 26" cruiser wheel, or does it go on a 24" inch rim?

    24 x 3 tires go on 24 inch rims, but they're the same height as a 26 x 2.125 on 26 inch rims.
    That's why some bikes have a 24 x 3 in the rear and a 26 x 2.125 in the front.
    24 x 3 and 26 x 2.125 wheels are interchangeable as long as there is room for the wider 24 x 3 tire.

    Thanks GameBent. I suspected as much, but just from looking at pics it's quite hard to see if rims are the same size or not. Much appreciated :mrgreen:

    That's a restored pre-war Mesinger long-spring saddle.
    It's springy-er than having springer forks.

    I have the same bike with the front rack which was recalled. LBS drilled a new mounting hole for it. Then they the recalled it again due only being welded on one side. Anway, I added a stock Electra rear rack with a wood slat. Just had to bend the rack supports a bit to alighn with mounting holes. (CRUISER ALLOY/REGULAR WOOD REAR RACK (Black) 26" LADIES') That is what shows up on the Electra web site, don't remember it saying "ladies" when I got it. You will also need the rack type seat post bracket.

    Well, I don't want to update pics every time I change the valve covers, hehe.
    Thanks for the accolades!

    Wife's Rat Fink...she says it's over-the-top, but I think she still likes the comments she gets when riding it! :)
