Lookin good, Jude. Be careful when buying a rat trap fork. The mechanical parts hold up OK but the original painted part of the fork is often damaged.As far as front ends go, all I knew was I DIDN’T want to put a springer front end on the bike! Lol
I was actually looking for a rat-trap front fork (but would have settled for a huffy rail fork) and I would have paid to have either modified. I found a couple of rat trap front forks on eBay and Craigslist.
Thanks wheelBender. Awesome input!!!Lookin good, Jude. Be careful when buying a rat trap fork. The mechanical parts hold up OK but the original painted part of the fork is often damaged.
-I knew my rat trap fork was damaged before I bought it and I had to do replace the painted part and make some mods to make it useable. View attachment 110603 View attachment 110604
Thanks! I got these off eBay; they were super cheap; like $25 delivered. They’re not the quality of OEM schwinn, but they’re not horrible either.Those pedals are pretty cool. Where'd you get them?
Ha, nope, not me. If I had a nice vintage white seat, I'd be finding a bike to put it on. (I actually have a couple of pretty good candidates.)
