Got the fork mocked up on the bike. Still need to drill the axle holes in the new front dropouts. Decided to go with a double spring arrangement for something different. Lots of details to work out Crappy picture, should have moved it for a plain background so details could be seen.
i like the air cleaner knock off bolts as axle nuts. did you have to drill and tap them to fit? i tried to fit one on the seat clamp on my goodyear but the threads were too small. and nice stance!

I bought those nuts years ago off ebay and they were made for bikes, at least that's how they were advertised. They were already tapped for 5/16 - 24. I had them on a 50's Hawthorne rider but thought they were perfect for this bike so I switched them.
It's a CST Cyclops 26 x 2.4 from Niagra Cycles. Cheap @ $13.92.

Worked on removing the paint, took more steps than I expected. I initially tried sandblasting but it was going too slow so I resorted to spray-on stripper. That worked quite well. Used a scotchbrite pad and soapy water to remove any loose residue and then went back to the sandblast cabinet. I'll probably spray it with WD40 to keep the rust at bay until I'm ready to paint.

Excess scraped off
Clean and ready for paint
I might prime it instead of the WD40, just something to keep the rust off while I finish the mock up. Don't want to paint until all of the parts are fitted and adjusted
