Well done John , well deserved  :4_17_5:

Attention to detail and the amount of time and effort you put into it is a credit to you mate.

You may think this as even more crazy   :uglystupid2: I was thinking today and I need to stop doing it :LolLolLolLol: (I love Z'ds) remove the wheels complete (keep them of course) and purchase 2 x schwinn 170 hubs and lace them to a couple of NOS z-rims so it looks like it's on nylon skinnies and the angle of the spokes from the hubs will really show off the spokes.    :coolsmiley:  I wonder  :chin:

 


Thank you everyone on RAD for your support on this project.
The breakdown, measurements and build are now on retro-goose.com in the projects section.

I loved reading thread...it was like a metal work lesson from school, great.

Wondering of someone at SE has seen it and been influenced...

The new fat mongoose Bmax frame has new school geometry and the others above are mountain bike frames, it was touch and go whether I could get these wheels into an old school bmx frame , Even though the wheels are 20" the OD with the tyres are 30mm larger than a standard bmx wheel (15mm top 15mm bottom)  That's  why I made it so the tyre is only 2mm from touching the bottom of the fork otherwise it would have sat too high at the front.

Didn't get my vote tbh... but probably deserved the win for the audacity to even think about doing what you did never mind building the fooker. Well done.  :daumenhoch:
