a few updates for you,

changed the headset and set up the brakes (need to shorten the rear cable)

still need to find a 130mm axle to fit my hope bulbs, i have tried to fit a big un shorter axle but i cant run both bearing with it. its been a bit of a nightmare that rear wheel and brake set up.

have you tried MWMB or Hope for the axle?
If hope don't have them anymore they may send you the dimensions if you ask nicely and explain what you are building...


just a thought?

My favorite 'Reader Bike' on the forum. Perfect in every way.

Please Sir, First dibbs if you ever decide to sell it on.

Lobo is my Unicorn bike and yours is the nicest I have seen.
