B29 Finally Rolling
« on: 08 Jan 2019 at 13:16 »
Finally got the wheels done and tires mounted, the 19" modern rims and Mitas tires work great.  I am amazed at how low the seat height is on the bike.  Thanks all who helped me figure out the way to go with the lack of 25x3 tire sizes.

Your bike looks great in that "as used" condition.
May be the new paint on the rim will lost the gloss a bit whenyou use the B29?

I hope I will finish my 1930 H3 also until spring!?

Do you have new clamps on your footrest rubbers?

Since the rims and spokes are new, they are really shiny, but that will probably go away when I ride it some more.  I am waiting on a new kickstarter gear to be made before I try to ride it.  I got the engine running late last year, so it should be rideable pretty soon.  The footrest rubbers are new from Parkwood in England, I had to modify the brackets for them to fit as the old tube type brackets were very badly damaged.  I've got two other project bikes going at the same time, a 1921 Cleveland two stroke, and a 1920 Clyno.  I usually do just one at a time, but these three came along at the same time.  I hope to get the Clyno done for its 100th birthday, the Cleveland next, and then I have lots of time for the Douglas!
