    Prewar Roadmaster Delivery

    Well, I've been busy at work, as well as being cold and lazy at home. Hopefully I can get inspired to get back on this. I'm having a major setback. I started this out with Krylon red primer. It is much more red than the rustoleum "red" primer, which is really just brown. However, nobody seems to...

    40's?? Huffman ladies' tank lowered to $35 shipped

    Dropping this to $35 shipped. Hopefully somebody can get some use out of it. I kind of want to start cutting and welding and make it look good on a mens bike

    Unknown brand drum brake front hub $50 shipped

    Unknown brand drum brake front hub. Works, and removed from a huffy trike. 36-hole. I never got the trike up fast, so I'm not sure how effective the hub would be at high speeds. Also, no idea what the inside of this one looks like. Pretty sure the fine print on the actuator says Made in Japan...

    The importance of decimal points

    Looks like the perfect storm occurred here. I bet the final bidder was freaking out. But the guy right before him... I bet he feels some serious relief.

    'Skin Deep' Ironing out a stretch. DONE!

    Great idea. I built a stretch from a 60's rollfast. I used a cruddy knock-off welder with very limited heat control. I still own and ride that bike, so you should be able to carry out your plans without too much trouble, even if the tubing is a bit thinner. Your best bet is to insert short bits...

    That is kind of where I'm at. I have to make some brackets to attach it to the frame. I'm still torn. I found a really cool rear rack for this thing. I'll post a pic soon. I think it will add a little cargo-carrying flair to the project.

    Prewar Roadmaster Delivery

    Thanks. If I find original parts later on, I could switch them out. But I'd like to just make this look somewhat original, and have it be useful. The baskets and brackets and parts like that are just too expensive if you find correct ones. Barring a miracle find somewhere, I'd say that if I had...

    Thanks for the link. I was expecting the headtube to be a the color of the fender accents. But it appears that the frame is one color with no accents. I definitely found dark green around the headtube, so I'm curious about that. It looks like the fender accents are pretty much what I expected...

    Not a lot of progress. In the past few days I have painted the fork light green, and fixed the basket support to tilt upward some. I have been looking at pictures of Roadmaster fender accents, trying to figure out how to paint mine. I am still unsure if I want to pull the wheels apart to...

    I like 3, but it looks small when on the bike. I might do some mock-up pics.

    Prewar Roadmaster Delivery

    So, I'm trying to figure out which chainguard to go with. Right now these are my options. Top to bottom: 1)Exercise bike guard; I was thinking of using this on a build years ago that didn't materialize 2) Huffman guard; not correct but I like...

    1947 Columbia Build

    I consider old bikes to be some of the best machines out there, from a simplistic standpoint. I've had some early 1900's bikes with precision fit bottom bracket and headset components, and some very precise machine work. On the other hand, this stuff was made to sell, and paint can cover a lot...

    Also, after reviewing some pics, I guess my front basket support should be tilted up just a bit.

    Prewar Roadmaster Delivery

    I have a pile of rear fenders that would be fine for this build. But I keep glancing at this one. It wouldn't be correct. But it has a curved brace like many of the roadmasters. It came off of a Huffman ladies bike. Similar rack to a dial-your-ride. I might feel bad about breaking up the fender...
