first of all thanks to doug (kase1983) for donating this frame for karma and also to tallpaul for collecting it and posting it on. cheers guys.
i want a cruiser for getting to work on. dont like ghaving expensive bits of kit outside all day so i decided to build a klunker. i was going to get an alloy one off ebay but posted a wanted ad on here first. this is the result of the wanted ad!
the plan, as always with my projects is to get it rideable first before stripping it and making it how i want it. that way i can decide if i like the way it rides without spending loads of money.
so the plan is to stick a set of disc wheels i have with a bolt on rear sprocket so i dont have to worry about the lack of brake hardware (will probably go coaster brake in the long term if i find a wheel cheap enough)
might swap the cranks for something very bling, just for the hell of it.
paint i'm, thinking brown or beige. whatever it will be matt that is a given. probably beige as the rust will come through quicker.
forks. stuck here. either motorbike inspired rigid "tripleclamps", motorbike inspired quasars, girvins or halson inversion forks, or nore sensibly possibly, a really old fashion looking fork. basically anything other than a standard curved fork if you get me.
tyres, eithger brown or cream 2.35 schwables
what do you guys think?
inspired by the early stages of jimmyhendrix's build (not that i think there is anything wrong with the later stages)
