Re: ill post it later.......
good to see someone got it :wink:
and ill be the one with the bass
well guess i should post a pic or two now! off to the garage.......
well.......here we are!
okay...okay.......now the bike :lol:
Ooooooohhhhh...... I would have killed for that frame weeks ago. I couldn't talk someone out of theirs, and then simply finding another one was going to cost me too much. Good thing....I am going with a different frame style now for sure.
Love what ya got there.....have fun!
wow sensor very interesting frame. what is it if you dont mind me asking and wow the paint is really nice original i asume. not quite getting the vans shoe tie in yet but in time. best of luck budy
its either a mead or an elgin(judging from the shiny spot where there was a badge id say elgin since its square)
the shoes are a joke between kota and i
oh ok i see lol. i was thinking elgin too just wondered if you knew. very cool gotta love the lines of old straight bar frames
That's hillarious, I was thinking yesterday how I needed to make sure I got in a shot of the obligitory "Off the Walls" in one of the first photos.
I'm still deciding between a couple of frames, plenty of time I figure to get rolling.
Nice Frame. Are you painting it? Say no. Eitherway, you will do it justice.
of course theyll be no paint! gotta have some respect for a bike thats lived over 80 years(that and shes pretty solid so no need to weld :wink: )
im waitin to see you find a fork with that short of a headtube lol
Way cool frame! Looks like its made of pool cues with that paint job, haha! whats your wheel and tire choice?
as for wheels and tires im looking for some 28" tried some balloons but theyre just way to tight so i guess its hunt for the singletube tires and wheels that it wouldve come with(fortunately theres 3 colors to chose from...black,white, and red)
btw anyone have any 28" wheels for sale?!?!?
I was able to cram balloons into my 28" wheel Elgin that is just like that, it will work with some washers and straight wheels. 26x 1 3/4 work better, but those 28" wheels are tough to find sometimes.
make it a fixie with a modern wheelset
i like that frame. when i look at it, i see a nice clunker. well what ever ya do, it will be nice.
nope no fixie and no clunkers :shock: not really my thing. good news is i might have a lead on some wheels (or at least some hoops and spokes!)!!would just lace some modern wheels together but my sons helping me out with this and is dead set on the tires he wants too use(hes got good taste...i wouldve used them anyway :wink: ) ill post some pictures of the "progress" later(guess the title was fitting huh? :lol: )
I was going to post some complimentary comments on your progress, but, I guess....."I'll post it later". :wink:
