    I just finished the 1968 Coppertone. A Local guy (Bryan) who hosts the Fairborn bike swaps did the powdercoat on both. Not a perfect match but close enough for riders! Swapped out the hard rubber tires for pneumatic coaster brakes and went with Wald training wheels. The green is a 1970.

    Very nice. Great little bikes. I had a few of these in the past. I always thought the hard rubber tires detracted from these bikes. Good choice on the pneumatic tires.

    Super cool little pair, nice job putting them together! If you have the little riders for them, here is the pair you need to look for them in the near future! Joe IMG_20150804_195654_211.jpg IMG_20150808_135114_810.jpg
