  2. There is a solution for the broken Photobucket image issue on forums. If you use Firefox or Chrome, go into the Extensions (Chrome) or Add-Ons (Firefox) and search for "Photobucket Embed Fix" - it will have an icon that looks like a green piece from a jigsaw puzzle. Install the extension/add-on, restart your browser (Chrome) and you should be able to see all of the Photbucket images again.

    Hey there,

    New to this. I want to build a boardtrack racer style bike like this :

    I have the chance to buy this bike and I'm trying to compare the two frames and I'm looking for advice. Anyone recognize this frame? Do you think I'll be close with this frame? I want to put a monark fork (re-welded) and some hefty tires on it as well. Any help would be appreciated as I'm new, but already hooked on this.:

    Thanks for your time.

    I pulled the trigger on this tonight. I'm pretty sure it is a Worksman. The dropouts and lugs on the frame look to match what I've seen on the Internet and the front wheel is stamped Worksman. It has crazy thick spokes. The back wheel is not right, but I'll try to find the right one and I want a hub brake anyway. I probably overpaid at $100, but there aren't a plethora of old heavy cruisers to choose from in Seattle due to all of our hills. How did I do?

    I would have paid that if I were doing your build. You can sit waiting for better deals and not know when or what you will get. Its a solid start!
