    One wheel was thrashed. Seat post broken off, welded back together poorley, broken off again.
    remainder of seat post stuck in frame. Lots of rust. could be the heaviest rrbbo build ever.

    I just traded one of these away early this week, a Worksman mover, but mine had 20" wheels, otherwise identical, rear coaster, from drum, you are right, heavy!

    What a great canvas to make something awesome!

    Hmmm, mount one of those on the back and you'd have a good start on a dogcatcher build... :mrgreen:

    Good luck, Rg

    Heavyweight Sub-sub-sub Buildoff! :D We're gonna' have to weigh these monstrosities when we're done. 8) My only recommendation is move to seat back, makes for a better peddler.

    I've given up on the Worksman for now.

    got stuck on the stuck seat post.

    so I'm submitting an alternative moving project shortly.
