Re: My 94 Auburn Build @ 90%

I really like the colorway and your choice of parts. Not too sure about the brake location and the cranks are probably way too long for the wife unless she's pushing the 6 foot mark...

Re: My 94 Auburn Build @ 90%

Thanks! Did another bike BITD with brakes located behind BB. Works Link has brake bridge down  there. Just something different. Cranks came as trade-intended on 180's as I traded away 175's.

As for wife pushing 6 feet-I figure she could put on some heels when she rides and that would put her over 6 foot plus!! winkcool

Re: My 94 Auburn Build @ 90%

Yes I know it is a race bike. Built lots of race bikes BITD & raced from '80-'89 while working in the LBS.   When I got back into bikes I could not justify buying back previous bikes: JMC DY &  JMC24 Cruiser at today's prices. Auburn came into the picture just as I was getting out of racing/BMX. Something about that Works Link . . . and the team green units. Found a sweet deal on a red one and I traded/sold most of the hardware.  Now I build with intent of what I like not to be be era specific.  Got to enjoy the fact that everybody can add spice to things in their own ways.

And BTW Richie Anderson & Andy Patterson built careers on Graphites   cool

Re: My 94 Auburn Build @ 90%

Been cold and some projects went idle. Things just don't feel right wrenching in my shop in the cold.  Need to get the heater hooked up to feel toasty and warm. Got a tap the gas line out to garage from house. . . . then watch out!

Answer #1- No different cranks-came accross an NOS 185 US Made set-guy traded me even up for a new set of 175 arms.
Answer #2-This alloy Works Link has a brake bridge on behind the BB. not sure if other alloy links have same feature. Other Auburns I have had were ChroMO Links.

Took some work to pick up slop shaving shaving down the Ody brake block and locating a resonably priced pair of Skyway fins then flipping of brake pad mounting. 

Check my bikes for more photos.

Thanks for the compliments!!

Re: My 94 Auburn Build @ 90%

nice trade on those cranks, about the 2nd question, i was wondering if the pitbulls work fine when you put it on the direction of the wheel spin, for the white rubbers on it, that is suposed to be in touch with the frame when brake force is applied, but in this case is in the other side, where same brake force is against pitbulls center bolt, once i put a pitbull set on a gt vertigo 95 in same side of the frame and it need to use plastic ties to hold sticked to the frame.
