Except the fact that they need truing, they have an issue with they're size. While very popular in the seventies in Dutch bicycles, 590mm size is not used right now. They were replaced with the more popular sized 26" - the 559mm, and later the 27.5" 584mm.Those mags are spectacular!
I called a friend of mine who has a car wheel repair shop & tire workshop, where he works with his father. I can say that they're one of the best guys when it comes to wheels in Warsaw. They're still using hand tools for truing wheels, and a lot of very old machinery.Didn't you hear him? Those mags are warped...
I trued one of my Mongoose mags with careful wacks with a rubber mallet. But I'm sure that's not the correct way. Truing does seem to be an issue with mags.
Ha-Ha! I had the “budget realignment” realization about a month and a half ago!Just today I realised - IT'S ALREADY 10th
Time to work fast on this one! Then I looked in my wallet and realised - There are only cobwebs and dust in it, so I need to make it really cheap right now. More progress when i come home from work and can upload the pictures!
Thanks! I like how most of the Muscle Bikes look, with their metallic paint, shiny chrome, and overall bling, but I'm more into the Destroyed/Deteriorated/Ratty look. Also this build cost me overall like 20$...Seat and front headlight look great on there! I like the ratty nature of this build.
Bring it on home!
