Went to the storage room today and saw the hubless sitting there. 100 percent humidity and 95 degrees locked inside a box in the dark with flat tires. Then I discovered what an asshole I am.

I couldn't just leave it there so I threw it in the van and off I went.. I never did get a chance to finish it completely when I had to move out of my shop, but I'm gonna see what I can get done in the spare bedroom to finish it.

Alison helped me get this lathe I bought into the spare room... OK just to recap; I've got a motorcycle in the dining room, pandora in the living room, and a lathe in the bedroom.

The lathe is a little funny to operate but it does seem to machine stuff fairly well. None of my tooling will fit on it but luckily there was a couple things inside the cabinet I could use. I managed to make up a "starter" piece to use as a guage for making new 'high performance" rollers for the back wheel.

Hey 4th,

I am glad to hear you plan on working on the hubless. I've been waiting to see the finished bike.

Later,

The Mrs. rocks! Could you talk her into a polebarn with a bedroom loft? :lol: Gig's won't go for it, so it's up to you to live my dream!
It's good to see the Hubless gracing the FreakBike Nation's Forum! This is one bike that draws attention whenever it's name is mentioned. Adnd when progress pics are added ....... slobber, slobber, drool, drool!
Thanks 4th,

Can't wait to see more done.

I managed to machine up a few rollers. First I had to machine a tool to machine the rollers.... but I didn't take a pic of that yet so sue me ..... whatever. Anyway, what was I saying? Oh yeah a couple rollers. Here you can see the radius cut in to the same matching size of the hoop "race" inside the wheel.

And here's with a couple installed...
