    Seems to me you were soliciting for help? Lose the thin skin

    since you felt abligated to
    Since you felt obligated to interject and only partial quote me, I have added the complete original request of mine from June 2015 ( see below ). note: As you can hopefully see, I am not asking for information on fenders.


    Thank you for your concern.


    “Hi all,


    recently picked-up a 41 "men's" (No boys) DX frame only (rough shape) trying to "bring it back to life". OK, here are the questions, please be kind since this is my first pre war ;


    1. I assume its a skip tooth ?

    2. A "D" rear hub was used ?, New departure ?

    3. Chain ring "Sweetheart" ?

    4. Drop center rims ?

    5. Front hubs used (styles) ?

    6. Style of truss rods (fork braces or not) ? may go to a springer.......... if ?

    7. Rear rack style ?

    8. Steering head style ? (bolt clamp location)

    9. Seat ?


    I know I'm asking a lot, and believe me I have done some research, but the information out there is conflicting to say the least. I have always wanted a DX and I've always wanted a prewar, when this came along, it fit both the bills.



    Any help, suggestions or pic's you guys/girls have would be welcomed immensely


    Thanks


    Doug


    PS. The Miss Teen and Fleet are almost done, updates soon.”

    Sometimes it is better to know what you are looking for and get the right parts (or as close as you can get) before you
    start a resto. No disrespect was intended. You did ask.

    I've been involved with bicycles ever since I was 12 years old and I still learn things.

    Thank you for trying to help me and no disrespect taken , but I might have given the wrong impression. I’m not actually looking for advise on how you do restorations or information about you, but thanks for sharing.

    Update: tank paint is not correct for year and will be changed, front fender needs some attention, also rims are for mock up only, its getting painted drop centers.

    Question on the tank - Is that one of the repro tanks or an original? If a repro, I'd love to see what the front fits to the frame like. Call me curious, as I've heard the tanks don't fit the same and can't see a reason, but don't have one off a bike to test.
    Thanks!

    PS: here's my '39 frame on the wall, and the complete original bike I got a few years later:

    Its a repro, I'll try and get some pics of the front of the tank this weekend. I don't recall having any problems with fit though.
