    Looking good man! Some “how to” pics on the neck work would be great. I’m in the process of trying to make a 44″ girder work on mine
    ..also LOVE the brake linkage, keep up the good work!!

    The chain setup for the rear brake is probably gonna go, only because I’m not putting a front brake on her. And jbone357 I will upload pics next week going to do the stretch over the weekend
