    Put the cups in the headset and bottom bracket and reupholstered the seat today, No before picture but the seat was a rusty parts pile and I pieced it together. It's a start!

    I'm still thinking of a catchy title!

    Looks like a good frame to start with for sure! I love how the rear end on those curve the way they do :)

    Yea, but it's a great start. You can never go wrong starting with a CWC frame! Robert

    Nice start. How much of that material do you have? Fenders wrapped in it would be cool.

    Haha, Name it what you want man its your bike, just the first thing that popped in my head. The plaid fenders sounds pretty cool, reminds me of the "old navy" Electras from a while back though Mad Argyle'r doesnt have the same ring to it :lol: Love the frame by the way ... and the plaid :wink:

    The more CWC's the better. I already built mine, The Cuyahoga Crusader, but I think a Cleveland themed name of some kind would be cool. Do you know what year your bike is?

    That's what I was thinking Randy, I got some western flyer kinda pointed balloon fenders I can use some spray adhesive and wrap it in that! If ya guys like cwc frames go check out my intro, I got a photo of my first western rat rod I did. As far as year on the frame I believe it is early or late 1940's, it is the same frame as my other and I thought it was late 40's but people have told me it could be pre-war

    Re: I'm still thinking of a catchy title!

    Usually on CWCs the down tubes give away the general time frame they were built. In the 30s the down tubes were straight, prewar 40s they had just enough bend in them to not be straight anymore and then post war 40s the curves in the down tube were more exaggerated. If you put all three side by side you could easily tell the difference. As long as they have rear facing dropouts I like them. Robert

    I'm no expert, but that looks just like my 1953 frame, I believe that style was made 51-56.
