Looking forward to the wheels coming back together with the hubs.
I'm being super indecisive about what I should do with the rims, should I paint them or should I leave them bare metal? I was thinking it would look pretty cool if I pinstriped the bare metal. But paint with Pinstripes wood look good as well.
Once you go bare, never say dare!
Laced up the rear wheel today, I miraculously managed to lace it exactly the way I took it apart. These old wheels are laced super funky compared to new Wheels. Also decided to leave the bare steel rims, so I get the. Bragging rights of having the only completely bare Steel Twin-Bar in existence probably .
Finished lacing up both Wheels, now I just have to tension and true the wheels. As well as rebuilding both hubs.
Wheel building ramblings & the beautiful brass and steel Elgin hubs.

Congrats on a sweet Twin Bar! It came out great bare!
Another nice build , your stock piling a nice collection.
For next build (or maybe even this one) try some different wheel lacing pattern (three leading- three trailing maybe?)
Very nice clean bike. No need for overdone doodads on a bike like that!
Very cool bike
