thank guys!
sounds like stock it was.
i also spoke with a friend up north i did some work for years back, and told me the same thing, stock castings.
like i say, this frame has to have work done and was already chopped: ( so i am not going to feel bad about tweaking it.
i love keeping bike stock or as close as possible.
here is one of my most loved rides.

thanks, it is one of my most loved bikes.

remember guys i am not messing up anything that is not already buggered a bit, and i don't plan on racing this.
if i was going to race i would going with something else.
this is just a fun project i am wanting to do. just a fun long term project for me.
i have a spare 45 bottom, a mucked up frame, and a couple K model baskets ( i do plan on put one K together ).
i do understand that the ball bearing motor may not offer much more but it's not really about that as much as just wanting to do it. like this front end i have, it it is nice, and if i knew for sure how much i could get by on raking it in and using it, i would in a heart beat. if i can make it work with a just a few degrees i probably will, if it looks like it will need to come in a lot i will look at one of the other fronts against the wall.
i have also thought about make this a chop down just because i never have done one.
