Re: 1957 JC Higgins Jet-Flo Cruiser 26

I know this is an old thread, but have a question about your headset. I have the same frame, and want to install a 1 1/8" threadless headset. I imagine reaming the head tube is needed. If so, is there enough material, and what process did you use. Thanks for any help you can give!

All i did was slide the headset into the tubing with a little epoxy and tightened the stem down to the fork to allow compression to finish the rest. It was kind of a hack job. Probably shouldve bought a steel headset to weld into place rather than epoxy an aluminum one.

Sorry Jacob from Massachusetts, but you’re not supposed to have this much fun with aB old classic bike frame....  j/k this is a killed combo and fun to look at for sure.  Great parts and pics :D :cool:
