Hey @DonChristie .... Congrats on the New Job !! CHEERS!! Now we can get back to the monthly Fun-day Sunday Cruisin' !!
I will be there weather permitting .... and after the ride .... while we are sippin' on some brews ... Let's try to figure out a day to all rendezvous at that Rail-Trail over in Rutherfordton, NC called the "Thermal Belt Rail-Trail" .... I'm jonezin' to check that out based on some Great reviews by some other vintage cruisin' buddies I know who have ridden it. It is less crowded because of its more rural location .... yet still within an hour of Charlotte .... and for myself and @Freqman1 coming up from GA ... its about the same travel time/distance from here... See you in a couple weeks! CCR Dave

Looking forward to meeting you! This ride is pretty easy. Maybe 10 miles round trip, but pretty flat. We ride a leisurely pace with “photo-ops” along the way. We usually take a lunch break at Hickory Tavern (totally optional) on the way back.
I see you’re looking for bike parts. Let us know specifically what you need as parts are often used on several different makes and models; pedals, bars, seats, wheels/hubs, etc
You’ll find lots of support and encouragement here! Ride on!!.

I Really like the Higgins truss rod setup so at least 2 of those, don't have to be mint as painting would be Ok, Columbia springer, deep or peaked 26" fenders that are workable, and a decent dog leg crank for a '50s Monark. Had to cut mine to disassemble & grease :cry:. If anybody rebuilds wheels I would love to get some of the O.G wheels redone too. 1 thing I haven't learned to do but I may someday

you sure your Monark had a dogleg crank? That was generally a prewar thing. What are you wanting to put the fenders on? See ya Sunday morning! V/r Shawn

Yeah it was a dog leg (unfortunately somebody welded a pedal to the side that had to come out to clean/grease the crank bearings (stupidity pissed me off so I took the saws all to it) after finding out the neck on the forks was tightened so tight it had blown through where it had already been blazed once from the looks of it. She fought tooth for tooth but now I have decided I would like to keep as many original era pieces & add vintage parts to my "custom" builds. As for the fenders ; what won't I put them on ??? ;)

I may be at the HC ride if the planets align.

I run a bike shop in Albemarle (about 45 miles east of Charlotte) and can rebuild your wheels...been working in bike shops since '72. Reach out to me with a PM here on your needs and I will be glad to help.

I have a set of prewar peaked fenders. I’ll send some pics tomorrow
I sent you a PM Jimbo53. Fenders look awesome. I can't tell you and the rest of the guys how amazed I am already at pretty much complete strangers welcoming me into their hobby, teaching me & being willing to pass on some parts to help me build these clunkers.
