    I don't really weld so i'm gonna do what I can to be creative: some 3" wheels - staying with skiptooth chain on modern cruiser rims. a prewar Elgin twin-bar frame, notice no seat post! Sprocket maybe will be custom made. undecided on bars, grips, accessories, flare, repaint, etc.

    Kevin, it's Lee....your part-time AZ neighbor! Yeah, we got back in time to enjoy a couple solid weeks of 'Winter in April'...about 25" of combined snowfalls. Beautiful now though!

    And this why why we get to change frames I assume?! Unless I only ride it straight I might not be riding this very far!

    Ouch!
    I'm not sure if I would change frames or change forks. Both are very cool!

    Remember what Yogi Berra said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it."

    I'm with TRM on this one. Both frame and fork are cool in their own right, just not together. Reminds me of a girlfriend I once had....

    Weld tubes to lengthen the upper part of the fork! Same opinion as TRM and OddJob, it would be a shame not to use this setup ;)

    Love the frame. AND those Vans tires are so cool. I almost tried them out last year.

    If I had to choose between the frame and the for, I would keep the frame.
    Nothing wrong with the sick fork, but it's hard to beat a Twin for coolness.

    I’m still on the lookout for a good fork. I need to find a vintage one that will have 3” clearance. Front fork for this one is close but not nearly 3”

    Kevin, I have the repop Monark Deluxe Springer that I got from my LBS through JBI bike (formerly J & B). I used it on my 'Hawth of a Different Color' build. And the really fat 3" tires (with a wide edge to them) fit nicely.

    It’s taken me a while to find something unique, looks like I’ll have to cut this down but, it’s progress.
