So I've always wanted a old Truss Bridge Bike but originals are hard to find and ANT's version was too much money for me.
I decided to work with a welder friend and make one!
A few things. This bike started out as a Montgomery Ward Open Road. The Stem Broke off and it was an old 21.15 mm. I ended up having a 22.2 machined down. Wheels are 26 x 1 3/8. I went in and out about making 650B but front drops are for a 5/16 axle.
I don't think I'd do this again with this type of frame but it was a learning experience. Thank you Sheldon Brown RIP!
