    Hi Cabers. I'm building my first G519 Huffman, starting with the frame. What can I expect to pay for a set of wheels? I restore approx 10 prewar bicycle a year (20s& 30s), and I built my own wheels, but never a G519. Thanks, JimRoy

    Hello JimRoy
    There was a set sold on the Cabe a few weeks ago by Krakatoa. Seems like it was 200 bucks per wheel but not sure. Are u doing a Huffman or Columbia frame? J

    I assembled the bike tonight, before I tear it down an head to the weld shop to repair a few frame issues. Obviously I need a few more parts ( wheel, seat, bell, etc).
