Smorgasbord was out of Hershey, PA. Currently a thread (w/some photos) on the Vintage forum. EWR (Eastern Woods Research) were out of Bethlehem, PA. EWR was started by Jay DeJesus. Once big into trials...Jay writes for Dirt Rag now and again.b12yan88 said:The frame needs to be modified for sure, but one might have to modify the rennen as well because of a rather large diameter at the drop outs. That area around the dropout is 1 inch inn diameter. This needs to fit inside the hood of the breezers, but im not sure if they do. Another thing that would need modification is the derailleur hanger. Part of the hood goes down into the hanger and consequently blocks the rennen from going over those areas. Grinding that down so that the hanger plate is flush will not compromise strength.... atleast i dont think it will. I think as long as there is enough of the hood to weld the seat stays on the itshould be safe.
ps. what kind of frames are those ?
i dont think that will work...Lutarious said:I wonder if you could space the tensioner out with a washer until it cleared the drop out hood. Would the roller wheel still be long enough to reach the chain? Seems less destructive than hacking your frame.
