What if someone besides Schwinn built a prewar cantilever? Most of us here have taken an old frame and put new wheels and drivetrain on it, makes for a cool, nice riding bike. How bout a not quite so old frame with a prewar drivetrain? Or am I just being cheap and trying to use up a bunch of stuff I have lying around and taking up space? :) Stay tuned to find out...

Like maybe the Chinese were building skip-tooth beach cruisers in the '1920's? Sounds like an episode of Sliders or Stargate. :)

We needs some pics
Yesterday was the girlfriend's birthday so no bike work, everything is currently buried in a pile in the corner, but I do have some archive pics..
I bought this flightliner from Falstaff last year, I wanted the tank, he wanted to get rid of the whole bike, we made a deal and I've got a crusty rusty flight liner, hence the name. This bike will be giving up it's frame, fork, seat post and maybe rack...

Good luck with your progress.
It’s not alway easy with life commitments. To squeeze in a custom bike build with a deadline.

Are those fenders on your girls bike as wide and long as they look, or is it just the small middleweight tire that makes them look that way? The thing about girl bike fenders is, they made them nice and long and low to keep the dirt off, well, you know, their skirts...

I used the fenders and fork off a girls Monark for Faded Glory, along with a men's Monark frame. Worked pretty well together.

Great looking bike! They are wide, after I swipe the parts I want off that bike I'm gonna try to give it away whole locally, if I can't I'll strip it for parts and keep the fenders for a future project

Made some boring but useful progress, this is where the bikes were
I cleaned up my work area and moved a bunch of stuff, the old one came out first
then the frame donor
and last the Westfield
I sprayed all the hardware with PB blaster, put the flightliner in the workstand and gonna let everything soak overnight

That bottom Ross frame with the twin top bars is the same one I’m using on my build this year. Nice stash of parts you have man .

It does not, it had a tank with a headlight, I bought the bike just to get the tank...
