Well i wouldnt miss this build off for the world , going to start with a late 40s or early 50s girls rollfast , i tired to sell this bike a bunch of times and nobody wanted it so now it becomes my build off bike , Going to build the frame and forks from scratch and just use the rear wheel and crank and and will be looking for the matching front wheel , i have never used a skip tooth for a custom build so this should be fun ,

You'll need to think about the chain length when you build the frame, it might be difficult to come up with extra links if it becomes necessary.

(I'd be interested in the stem if you part it out.):)

Well as of now I have 5 skip link chains in the shop , hopefully I can get it built using just 2 full lengths of chain , "I hope"

I'd strip the paint and use it...
Headbadge too, gives your build some heritage.
Drive the purists crazy...:rofl:

I have been called all kinds of things by the purists for using old parts for some of my builds , but they still come and go through all my boxes looking for the parts they need for there restoration , hahaha

Ok here we go , the frame is stripped and ready to be cut , the plan is to stretch the frame by about 10" just behind the crank , moving the crank forward and leaning the seat post back and lowering the top rear stays , then remove the front top bar and turn it into a mens bike , trying to find the right tank for this build but i do have some coming from CRASH and will see if any of those will fit the look , not sure about forks yet but first the frame
