Re: Out with the new, in with the old

Have my grubby little hands on a number of parts but this is a slow build finding parts I want that are close to being period correct or close, a few items will be new with a old school flare. I have been making my choice of parts on period parts with the best chrome I can find in hope to keep from ...

Re: What is going on ????

Humm, so you guys were into them but does stand to reason being that is where it all start and we were still behind. I remember reading in one of the BMX mags about the benefits of running front ( and these days after riding MTB I understand ) plus the other thing that cracks me up is the tooth coun...

Re: What is going on ????

Drives me nuts with the hit or miss photo on here Don, I started to do pic's but figured why bother...plus the fact I wrote the post while at work, I don't have all my bike pic's on the work computer so the loaner would not be there even if I could post a pic. Hey Super D , most DJ bikes I have seen...

Re: Out with the new, in with the old

If the weight of the rear hub is a indication of total weight, a steel I beam might be needed ! They refer to that generation as the greatest from their actions during WW2 but I think they were just bad asses due to riding 80 lbs ( bit of stretch for fun )bikes around and I have seen old pictures of...

Out with the new, in with the old

Some of the first parts for the build and odd for me to say being a self proclaim weight weenie....MY HUBS WEIGH MORE THAN YOURS ! I swear to the bike gods the rear hub weighs close to my whole Cuda, just slightly joking but they made stuff to last back then for sure. I hope this turns out to be a p...
