  2. Very nice lookin ride! Nice wheel choice. Those steel rims will generate a fair amt of gyro for you and they're vertually immune to potholes!

    Great looking build.....
    What is the deal with the bent cranks?
    Did you buy them like that?

    Where did you get your Sturmey Archer hub brake?

    bent cranks

    I bent the original cranks that came on the bike...It wasnt too bad to do, just got them cherry red with a torch and bent them in a vice...They came out really well and have about an 1 1/2" clearance on each side of the engine...I'm thinking of maybe buying a couple sets and selling them after I bend em...I got the rim and hub through "Husky bicycles"...I got lucky and he had a few sets in stock...He said they can take a couple months to get when they run out.....
