Thanks I'm going to see what happens. It's gonna be a while I've got some other things on my burner .. I've got a high level math background and mechanical/auto body skills so no problems there. already figured out most of the dimensions....

Bought this project local from Fellow caber Dave K. It's a 41 Schwinn, covered in house paint and cad paint on every part. Here are some pics as I got it and it's transformation, still got a ways to go.

you can see the fork is red under the maroon house paint.
Here it is now cleaned.

It's not the original color, but a very old repaint with nice patina so I'll keep it, the head tube and darts I re did.

I am updating my Pierce project. It has been painted and I have reassembled it. Almost all of its ball bearings were either broken or missing. I replaced every ball bearing. It now spins freely. The rims and tires are currently MIA. Hopefully in a few days I will have her up and around.

Good to see that someone else laces wheels like I do. Interesting truing stand too. Looks like it might work better than my commercial stand. Nice work!
Thanks, I can't find a decent truing stand under $150 and I wanted/needed to buy a shop press. I'll buy a nice truing stand a bit later, it's next on the list. :D

To my wife's Shelby: repaired a snapped screw in the fork (drilled and tapped) and a crushed lamp bezel. I made the fork fender mount screw out of a bolt Haha! I'm waiting on a lens from Mike Burden:cool:. Once I get the lens, I can shape the front to fit the lens.
