    thank you!

    for the wheel,
    you have to take a steel wheel like this:
    [​IMG]

    not like that because it is a bad weld:
    [​IMG]

    cut between the spoke holes with a small grinder placed on the floor, hold it firmly and turn the rim to get a straight cut

    after simply rolling a sheet of good size and welded together the pieces of rim

    I'm looking for a large hub (170 mm) coaster brake, a banana seat and a tire type dragster in 26x3

    Do you know a good shop that offers delivery in France for not too expensive?

    looks really good so far, keep up the great work :)
    one question tho, how r u planing on doing the hub for the rearwheel?
    are you going to widen that aswell? and will it have brakes, gears, freewheeling etc?

    Man, you've got me excited now. I can't wait to see that crank. Is that a spoke threading tool. If so, where did you get it? Excellent work so far.

    thanks a lot!!
    you also did a great job! :wink:

    I need to change or repeat the same then as it cranck does not fall in front of the wheel .... but the new will be as beautiful!

    I mounted the rear wheel to mock-up the bike,
