I replaced the original 18 tooth sprocket with a 20 tooth, that
dragged the wheel forward 1/2″, it it more centred now which makes me
think that is what it was meant to have in the first place, it is
better to ride also.

I soaked it in bucket of water for a few days, then bent it into
shape, wrapped a rope around it to hold it in shape and allowed it to
dry. Then rubbed in plenty of Dubbin, a leather product. Two kids, 9
and 11 have used it and say it is comfortable.

The brake levers seem to be child size.
