Not the biggest progress, but got these in the mail today, new rubber sealed bearings for front and rear wheel, and now only need the spokes to finish my wheels:

Also i'm waiting for the weather to clear up, so i can pick up my new frame. Can't go anywhere by car due to snow and ice  :-\

Finally picked up the new frame this weekend. Cut off the brackets etc. that i don't need and now it's ready to be cleaned and paintet:

Also fitted the new wheelbearings, front and rear:

And did the small job of finishing the brake plates, so now hubs and rims are ready for spokes:

Update will follow when frame is paintet  ;D

Did you paint or powder the rims? if paint what did you use? I worry about getting the tires onto painted rims without chipping them all to hell and back.

The rims are just spraypaintet. 2 coats of primer and 3 coats of black. I had the exact same worries about the paint chipping when fitting tires, but i seems to hold reasonable good. I've hit some parts with a rubber hammer really hard a few times and the paint didn't chip. I thinks if you use a lot of lubricant when fitting they tires it will be alright.

Finally it feels like i'm moving forward. Frame blasted and primed, will lay some color tomorrow and then on to assembly.

Also named the bike "sailors Grave" since i spend half the year at sea and spend my money on the bike when i'm home.  :D

Man this build is almost making me want to take mine all apart and do it all over again (wife would kill me lol). Real nice work! Can't wait to see this come together. I'm real interested in how the rear seat is going to come out. It all looks great, man! Congrats on the lil one, as well! I have a three month old and I just sit him in my lap and scroll through pics and videos of this stuff. START 'EM YOUNG!!
