Posted by: Mullet TITLE: BALLOON:   help
i bought a western flyer balloon tire bicycle and am in the process of restoring it. unfortunately it didn~t come with wheels and the forks that came with it have dropouts smaller than 3/8." can anybody help and tell me what they might be and point me in the right direction of some decent vintage balloon wheels?

most front axles are 5/16" I believe. depending on the value of the bike you might go ahead and enlarge the dropouts as suggested, otherwise get more proper wheels.

If you can~t find a narrow enough axle you can always enlarge the dropouts on the fork.
