    Update time.
    Had to get a new fork. Had to come up with my own version of a crown race setting tool. It worked great.

    Re: Seawall Cruiser

    Here is another mock up showing the direction I'm trying to go.
    Need to work on the fit and finish of the rear fender. Also need to figure out how I'm going to shift and brake.
    The tires seem to be perfect.

    I've decided that I don't like the handlebars, seat, or the one piece style crank. Tried to use a bottom bracket converter such as this one.

    But then I came to the conclusion that this would require too much grinding.

    Oh well, I'll have to try something else.

    Yep, that's the something else I was referring to. I'm waiting for mine to come in. I hope it works out.

    Finally got my bottom bracket in with the crankset I wanted.
    I just love 52 teeth chainrings.

    Thanks. To get it done, I'm gonna have to buy more parts or "borrow" parts from another perfectly functioning bike. One of my bikes has already made "contributions" to the cause.

    Decided not to sacrifice another bike for this build off. Parts should be coming in the mail today. I really feel bad about sacrificing one bike. :cry: I just could not harm another bike during the course of this contest. More pics to follow.
