    Help me out with my Worksman headset

    You can use your worksman cups and everything else out of a (porkchop) VP-H755 headset. I can't take credit for this, the gentleman that figured it out hasn't been here for awhile. I did it once and it was fine for me.

    Rat bike guys adjustable wrench.

    ViceGrip with a replacement jaw. "You heard it here first". Grind or weld do what you need one time, save or replace the jaws, still retain the tool. Oh man, I'm probably gonna see this idea on a late night commercial. Vice Grips and replaceable jaws. The 47/64 special bendix wrench, or the...

    Rat bike guys adjustable wrench.

    In 1980 I bought a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, you Mopar gear heads will know what I'm talking about. The distributor is all the way in the back next to the fire wall.

    Latest build, a spoof skip tooth

    Yeah, have really no idea what that repop went on but on 29er fits fine (have to watch the width of course). 28 no prob, I bet it was made for a 28. Tried to look up the place I got it from, could not find it. It was a German shop had a lot of Dutch bike stuff. And the repop was from India. You...

    Latest build, a spoof skip tooth

    Yes it is! Worksman INB of course! Originally I was going to put that fork on a Schwinn double straight bar that I have. I thought the frame twin bars and the fork twin bars would look awesome. Nope, just didn't look right. Got the frame from Chuck off this forum. All I did was light steel wool...
