    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. IMG_20170612_182433791_HDR.jpg IMG_20170612_182509708_HDR.jpg you can see the fork is red under the maroon house paint.
    Here it is now cleaned. 1498273115572-542710075.jpg

    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.

    This is another project on the burners. It has been stripped and is almost ready for primer and paint. It is a 1907 or 1908 Pierce bicycle. IMG_20170623_230153.jpg

    41 up and running, getting the rear fender rolled out and the paint off the front, here is the current look mocked up with an older mesinger B-7 saddle. 1498451660547-1223033433.jpg

    I'm working on the wife's '51 Shelby this week. I'm almost finished with the rims.

    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. IMG_20170703_231414[2].jpg

    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.

    My 1952 J.C Higgins Color-Flow looked like this before.

    My Motorbike fork had a severe bend; it made me kind of nauseous just looking at it.
    Never again will I wrestle around with a bent steering tube in my shop. My shop press fixed it in under 5 minutes. I made a sleeve to evenly distribute the force.
