Ive seen that bike on CL on and off for a few months. Is that trailer hitch sturdy or is it sketchy?

I did have it posted because in my world everything is for sale for the right price ! The trailer hitch is VERY shady. Looks like some toothless hillbilly had a bit too much moonshine during the fab process.

anyone have any advice on the front wheel? Just wondering if theres any opinion on keeping the front wheel and fork. Can you run the orignial rim without the brake. Making spacers? doesnt look like itll work to me. Can i run a 21" spool without changing forks? Im sure the axle sizes are different than that of american iron. just looking for opinion in regards to brake or no brakes. My bud says brakes are for pussys. i say brakes are for stopping

Id say keep the front brake man. Maybe get a drum on the front, they look much nicer in my opinion. At the end of the day, you gotta be able to stop! We have no choice over here in the UK, brakes are the law.
