We decided to use a 4.50 x 18" Firestone rear tire, we put it on for
mockup now, but will be powdercoating hub and rim later.

 

To line up wheels and chain on the jig-table Aad made an aluminum rod that fits
in table and frametube and holds the rear wheel 1/4" above the table.

 

Using 4 steel bars in the jig-table Aad lined up the front wheel exactly.

 

With the front wheel centered Aad welded a tab on the frame so that the frame stays
straight while we work on the bike. The 19" front wheel could now be removed, and we
tried a 21". This looks much better, will get a spoolhub later.

 

To be continued...
