    WOW! You got that before I edited it out...
    Seemed too complicated for words...
    but I'm glad it worked for you, it's really how I would have done it.

    Glad you got it fixed. Too much ice to get a good head of steam impact into the garage anyways! :headbang: Looks like your original paint was candy apple red metallic.:)

    Friday got the frame stripped down to the native candy red paint. I guess I will put on extend rust converted and see how it looks before spraying.


    I have some cast iron engine paint to spray with. Engine paint is known to be very. Just give enough time to harden before putting the bike back together.

    Sunday was frame prep day. The from fort had to be p grind to had the new rim. The back wheel fits good. No sketching of the frame to fit the new 3 speed hub.


    With the behind we now back to frame prep and paint.


    [i am hoping a add a shifter much like they used a hundred years ago.

    That 'Top Tube Control' with the rod linkage would be awesome!

    I like the last line in the ad,
    "Once it is adjusted correctly it gives no further trouble" :rockout:
