    What I plan on doing is take a bearing cup from a three piece crank set and welding it to a pipe that slips over the hub of the wheels I have to attach the freewheel to the rear wheel. This should work if the way I envision it all going together works out. Both the freewheel hub and 3 piece BB have 1.37 x 24tpi if I remember correctly. The only thing I don't remember 100% is which side of the BB is the same direction threading as the freewheel.

    I had the idea to do something like this on a future build so it'll be good to see how you go.

    I think you'll find the left side 'adjustable' cup is the one you want. The right side is the 'fixed' cup and usually left-hand thread.

    Good thinking, post up the process. It will open up a lot of fun wheel choices if you figure out how to get this working.

    Checked the stash. I only have 1 of the 12"scooter wheels.

    Tonight was really nice outside after work, but I didn’t get a lick of my build done. Been dealing with some type of head cold or something like that. At first I thought I might have inhaled to much welding fumes but I not sure about that. Hopefully I should get back at it later on this week if it doesn’t rain.

    Take it easy Man, it's a marathon, not a sprint, a few days off here and there will produce a better build. (Unless your name is OddJob...)

    F2361BB7-5497-481C-8993-CB99D4917C0E.jpeg I got some work done on it, most of the work was cutting apart an old build that never worked out. So far it seems to be fitting together well.

    The crank will go on the frame about where it sit on the ground.
