Throwing things together, turns out my wheels that I’m using the bearings were rusted solid. Not the hugest deal, I knew I was going to have to swap out the front wheel’s in order to go from a 10mm to a 12mm axle.
These wheels are pretty rare, but i found some on biketitan.com. If you happen to have a similar setup and are looking to do the same thing. These are the bearings you’re after…
- Front Wheel = 16101
- Rear Wheel = 6001
Biggest issue I’m working with right now is how I’m going to mount the radiator. Ordinarily I’d weld a bracket to the bottom of the tank, but I needed to paint a bunch of things at the same time this winter so not really an option at this point. I’ve got a couple of ideas, but still not sure of which way I’m going to go with
