You have a lot of not-so-common parts to gather. If you're lucky, you can find a wrecked frame with the parts you need. More likely, you'll spend months (or years) finding them on ebay or at swap meets and spend much more than a complete PX10 would have cost. Good luck.

I have a track-like bike from maybe the 1920s... can't tell for sure. Headbadge is missing, no other markings except for what seem to be the original graphics. It's got a skiptooth chain & a New Departure Model C hub. It's all original, except for the Schwinn S-6 rims that presumably replaced the old wood rims. Also, the front hub is of the same 1970s vintage as the rims. I want to restore as best as I can, but I'm lacking any real information about the bike... my question: what kind of front hub would be age-appropriate for this bike? Low flange? Any manufacturers I can look for? I want to build new wheels with modern wood rims.

These bikes seem to be a dime a dozen. I found this one recently and gave it a full cleaning and tune up. This bike is HEAVY, I mean really heavy, but also very smooth

Here is a pic:

It is easy to change your Racing or Dropped bars but may be costly if you have to buy new parts. You will need 2 brake levers as your levers wont work with the upright bars. You will most likely need new brake cables also as your cables wont work with the new levers, look at the cable ends, some have a ball end and some have a barrel end. You may also need a new Handlebar stem. If you live in a college town you may have a friendly Bike Co-Op that will help you and may even have the used Parts you need. Keep an eye out for used bikes at a thrift store to use as a parts bike.
