This was a good exercise for me. Got me back into drawing after 20 years. I ordered an extra one to put on the tool box!
Man, I don't know if I've ever really seen one of these bikes from the side quite like that. It really looks that much longer than your standard 20" bike! I agree, the long stance is killer! Longer, leaner, lower, faster! That's what those Huffy Rails convey to me, at least.Been super busy, so I’m behind and at the end of my staycation that allowed me to catch up on my builds, but I’m still further behind than I like. But... I started mocking up the Goblin to ensure all the hardware is fitting.

I don’t know about you, but I really... really... love the long stance lf
“I needed to ‘introduce’ a brake mounting hole to the fork” hahahahaha! Love this statement!I thought I showed this earlier, but I’ve never seen this bracket on a fork before. When I got the bike, it also had an external bracket holding the fender with a big bolt going through that bracket. I thought the hole might be for a brake, but it’s not. Like I said, I’ve never seen the bracket before, so I’ve never seen it set up, so I’m just figuring it out.

I found screws in my stash that fit. I had to just chop them down to allow room through that hole, and because they didn’t look right being long. But when I tried to put a brake center bolt through it, it was obvious that it wasn’t for a brake.
So... I needed to introduce a brake mounting hole to the fork.

This should be the only modification I need to make to the bike. I just need to finish the mock up and ensure everything fits as it should.
