    Guys and Gals, I am looking for a 26 inch front wheel (chrome) that will handle a 26 X 2.125 tire with a drum brake setup. I would like to find a new one if possible. I have read the threads and only find hubs etc. Anyone sell a complete ready to go wheel minus tire and tube?

    Thanks for any and all help,

    I will be calling Workmans tomorrow, sonds like they have just what I need they also have a drum brake rear if anyone is interested.

    Thanks for the help guys,
  6. If I had some money I'm all over that but since I don't maybe I'll read up on spoking my own rims. My rear rim needs replacing again (#3 now). Since I'm poor it's back for the 15 dollar garage sale finds. It's nice to have all these bike parts and frames,but they are missing rear rims!

    Hi Dave, Did you get the wheels you were looking for from Worksman? Which rear wheel did you get, drum or coaster? Did they have them in chrome? Let us know how they work out.

    I have a front drum brake on the 1950 Columbia I'm restoring. I won't take a chance riding anything with an engine without front a brake. I have been so interested in my Whizzer that I have neglected the Columbia project. Let us know how you make out with the Worksman wheels.

    Well guys and gals don't get in to big of a hurry when you order from workman. I call friday and checked to see if my order had been shipped. I ordered it early last monday morning. They said it would not ship out until this coming wednesday and that I would probably recieve it the following monday. So at least 2 weeks for wheels as they have to make them up when ordered.

    I will keep you posted when I recieve them.
