    Sold Colson fork

    Sarg, Your frame looks like the same one I have: https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/colson-flyer-project.157523/ I just measured the head tube on my fork. It's 6-5/8". For reference, I also measured from the top of the upper bearing cup to the bottom of the lower one. That measured 6-1/8"...

    Colson Flyer Project

    About to start building a set of wheels for this bike. I bought these rims from bicyclebones about 6 years ago. They've been up in the loft and had some surface corrosion. A few minutes with some chrome polish cleaned them right up! I also got a real nice, nearly NOS Morrow hub from...

    Morrow Brake Shoe Question

    Ah, this is where I saw the thing about the earlier shoes being smooth. Even shows how to cut the grooves. https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/morrow-hub-help-please.111551/ Just realized though, I didn't see that retarder spring in there. Maybe I just missed it. Will the hub not work at all...

    Morrow Brake Shoe Question

    Hey all, I got my hands on a Morrow hub a while back. Never had one apart before but wanted to check the bearings and races. Everything looks good but curious about the brake shoe. Is this one okay? I think I read somewhere that they were smooth originally, then they added groves later on...

    Dimensions of Rollfast/Hawthorne springer fork rocker plates and bushings?

    Ranman, That fork is from a Hopalong Cassidy bike from about 1952. The parts are probably slightly different but I'm pretty sure that the assembly would be the same as the Hawthorne. Edit: From the looks of barracuda's bike in post #8, it looks like Hawthorne may have used it as well!

    Dimensions of Rollfast/Hawthorne springer fork rocker plates and bushings?

    Ha! I just ran across this thread again. I remember doing this now but to be honest, I'd forgotten about it (6 years ago). lol Glad to see that it has helped some people! Thanks to all for the additional contributions!

    What saddle is this chassis from?

    Hello Cabers, Can anyone tell me what saddle this chassis is from? The loops in the back are too close together to mount the springs directly to them. The springs end up being all contorted and pulled inward. Any help is appreciated. Comparing to one of my other seats, you can see how...
