    Just got this hub in the mail today and my bike is currently at the shop. So...i reckon ill have it respoked into the original rim. It doesnt spin fast but when i turn the gear the other way its a lower gear. It probably needs to be regreased. They charge $75 labor and a $1.00 a spoke.

    Looks like a nice bike. I hope the stand clamp doesn't damage the decal... they're very fragile.

    The only accessories I have on my Spaceliner are flashing, bullet, valve covers. When the wheels rotate, the LED bulbs inside will flash like strobes. It's pretty cool, and seems appropriate for the Spaceliner.

    Been meaning to post this info for a while. I finished an abbreviated restore of my wife's Spaceliner earlier this fall and learned some new tricks. Both battery containers were shot and had to come up with something new. I wasn't concerned with originality. I just wanted something that worked. Parts for the rear light included a "free" flashlight from Harbor Freight and a double "D" cell box with and on/off switch. I tore the flashlight apart for the bulb and the housing. The box needed modified to contain the tabs for the lens and attachment to the rack. After that, I painted it white, soldered the light to the box and used a little hot glue to hold the light in the right spot so I could get the lens in...sort of like putting a puzzle together. The result looks pretty good. So if you just want a light that works and aren't concerned with originality, this is a inexpensive route to go.

    I updated the chain guard...

    Not entirely happy with it, but it is fun to work with it.
