    Anyone know where to get classic big wheel parts? I am looking for a wheel and cranks, and the fork. I am doing a project at school where we design and build a bike and I have chosen a big wheel, old style race bike. Parts are hard to find though and any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    6 year plan! This is what happens when you change majors to Mechanical Engineering after already being in college for 2 years, haha. Thank you all for the helpful info. I will check those links out.

    Those were so freaking awesome! I was skateboarding when they came out but my little bro had one. I still remember the commercial where the kid comes flying up and jams on the brakes! This is the highlight of my suck day!
