  3. That would look sick with some of those 3G Jemima 26" x 57mm wheels with a pair of BOA-G 26" x 3.45" tires, or a pair of Mongoose beast 26"x 4" wheels. Also love the simulated patina.

    I think that is an O'malley made Girder fork, Loving aged yellow and the redlines. Great looking bike :)

    Okay fork nerds... :lol:

    I couldn't find the exact photo, but Vinz told me the fork came off of a 1950s DKW motorcycle.

    Yes...a motorcycle.

    I just paid Ruff for one of these bicycle. First time bringing a bike over from Europe. Can't wait to see what my under valued dollar bought.
