    Starting with a Colson Flyer, I plan to make a plain clean looking cruiser.Need to deside on a color for the frame and wheels.I may go with the original maroon with brick color tires and pedals.Need to get the brown paint off and smooth the welds.I will be using most of the original parts so it will be simple and clean.

    Exactly how "fat" of a tire are we talking about? :roll: :D

    Good luck!

    I think I will use 26 x 2.25 , nothing too big because I want to keep the chainguard without having to cut it.

    Dupli-Color Self -Etching Primer that I think I will need to go over with a white primer before painting.
