Nice tire, I'm curious about the total width of them, when mounted on a rim. According to it's size it would be 15cm, but if the walls exceed this I might not be able to use them, because of clearance with the chain.
Found a tri-star for the rear. Should be here by the end of this week! It probably needs a lot of clean up, but it wouldn't be my first rodeo. (Man I hate cleaning those aluminum wheels)
I figured out a paint scheme so now I can work on the seat. Hopefully I can make my way to "The Foam Factory" this week and pick up some seat foam. The problem is that they close at 5 and they are not real close.
I bought my wife one of those Cricut machines for Xmas so I'm gonna have her make me an iron on decal for the back of the seat. Don't know how that'll turn out, but supposedly you can iron on to vinyl.
I actually worked on the bike a little tonight. I was able to make some of the Harrison rear brake cable stays and weld them in position to the frame. I started with some 3/8" diameter round stock at 3/4" long. Drilled a 1/4" hole through the center 5/8" deep. Then drilled a 1/8" hole the rest of the way through. Placement was 6 1/4" from the rear of the engine plate.
I got my tri-star wheel in the mail today and it was almost perfect. One wheel half was correct and the other half was from a narrower rim. 1/2" narrower. Ugh. Fortunately I had a correct rim half in the pile o junk that I somehow hung on to. Once the inner tube gets here I will assemble the rear wheel and sprocket.
Seems like it's been a while since I posted anything. Been working on other things besides this and the weather has still not been cooperating. Here is a sneak peek of the color scheme I'm heading towards. Heavy metal flake with yellow and some green kandy. I will top coat it all with a few coats of 2k high gloss.
