Hi!

starting to build my 1939 DX project now.

One question though. How did you get the rear hub fit? I'm looking to instal Shimano 8 gear hub, but it is about 25mm wider than rear fork?

Cool. I used a string and a 2x4. See this earlier post.

I scored an NOS Ashtabula Schwinn-stamped stem over the winter and finally took the time to install it.

This makes an awesome town/pub bike!
