Thanks a Lot for the compliments Guys!
I’m glad you like the setup. It’s getting closer…

Or maybe use one of the colors from the seat tube decal Blue, Red,? would be easy to spray fork and see how it looks.
Thanks Skipton for the suggestions and props. I hadn’t quite thought of not matching. Might try to paint the fork but there is still the wheels I wanted to match. Maybe not match but compliment like your suggestion of gloss white. Maybe paint sissy bar plus other components. Maybe black out components. I’m so confused…
While trying to decide what to do with the 24” frame, I bought a fat slick for my wife’s 20” frame to see if it would fit . Found a reasonable deal on Innova Swifter Chopper 20”x3” tires (2 for the list price of 1). Knew that a 2.8” would barely fit if before the frame’s inward curve. Looked at Randy’s measurements for 24”x3” (sectional width=61mm) and someone else’s 24”x3 (sectional width =71mm), THANKS Guys! So used the rust old wheel originally from Mag Ray and stuck it on. The Innova is 2.75” sectional width! It will fit with a drop out mod (same as on the Spaceliner).
Know it looks like just recycling parts between the two bikes but now I know what works.
Really like the look of these tires on this bike! Know now I’m going to order a new aluminum-rimmed, single-speed wheelset. Think it will be light enough for a single speed. Can goof around with gearing yet too. Also, can send out the 20” frame for stripping now. My wife gets the head badge, chainguard and tall sissy bar, I get the 3 speed with shifter
That’s the Front/rear tire-diameter look I want on the 24” frame! Noticed the Jerald slick is becoming a favorite with the 24” muscle bikes so thinking about switching it up with an Innova 24”x3”. Not sure if I want to though. The 24” Jerald slick is slightly less than 2 lbs. The 20” Innova is 2.5 lbs. The 24” Innova will be even heavier. It could look really cool though and it IS a 3 speed.
But there is a drop out mod involved. Have to think about it for a while. ..
Thanks for looking
