    I'm not a fan of those tires either, but on that wide rim, I like it. Looks great.

    I've used the flame tires before & although they are not my favorite look, they do ride pretty nice. Back tire combo looks awesome Skip! This is one to watch boys & girls! :mrgreen: 8)

    I wanted to try this, Cut the dropouts off the Elgin girl bike.
    Use the rear facing dropouts to get a little more room for the tire, And get the back wheel as far back as possible so I don't tip over :roll:

    Does give me a little more room, Won't be hard to bolt them on, I'm not sure if I will use them yet.

    Also cut the seat post off. Not going to need it. :wink:

    [​IMG]

    I have to run some kind of rear fender, That's where I will be sitting. :mrgreen:

    Still lots to figure out with the fender,

    I have had plans for a different fork from the beginning, this one won't even fit the tire.

    Thanks for looking lots more to come!

    Thats looking good! Think the extended drop out is a great idea.
    You must have had confidence that fender/seat would work when you lopped off the seat post :lol:
    No other way of seeing the curves though
    How does the disc line up for the caliper mount?

    MplsCoaster,
    Thanks!
    I Have the fender seat all figured out...... In my head, :roll: :roll: :shock: :wink:

    not sure about disk brake alignment, but it looks like it should work. :roll:

    I think I like this fender better.

    Thanks everyone for all the positive comments! :mrgreen:

    I need to make a trip to Home Depot and get some flat and round stock steel.
    And get my fender/seat built.

    Cant wait to see what you do on the seat!
    Your build last year really got me thinking about full fender ideas! Great idea! Thanks for the inspiration...
