hey gang ive been upgradeing the jc higgins slowly but shurely, so i can motorize! first step of course was good wheels ect! i shoped like crazy for moderate priced heavy duty wheels till my eyeballs fell out, so on the advise of ratrodder i checked out- http://www.huskybicycles.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=SFNT&Store_Code=hb & bought a set , first i orderd the sturmey archer front drum but they were out of stock so got the plain jane to match rear.32$ for front & 40$ for rear. for the price they cant be beat! very heavy duty spokes, nice & true & good brakes. crank berring set 6$ sprocket 7$ shipping 15. oh yes & the 59 cadilac tail light - priceless at jc whitney!!
