Another one almost done
Today I finished cleaning up this 1943 war time civilian Huffman lightweight. It is in original paint and everything else appears correct except for the new tires and replaced grips. I bought the bicycle back in August; it's now displayed in our kitchen.
First hoop was twisted second attempt (2nd hoop)was successful
Front loader for my wife's DX taking the Evaporust bath
Next in the bath crusty Torrington 8. Best parts from the 4 to make a good pair.
Montgomery Wards Silver King , washed and lubed it , pumped up tires , got ready to load it for Cyclone Coasters ride and front tire split and blew tube ! Lol ended grabbing another bike for ride
Replaced rotted tires with new rubber today
Recommenced work on the convertable rear BSA tandem, 3 1/2 hours in and the frame is starting to come good.
At least another 3 1/2 hours to go!
I'm repainting My TOC bike today. Someone had it stripped down to bare metal and painted up years ago but it looks like someone spilled a chemical on it and it pulled some of the paint off. I touch up those spots but just wasn't happy.
When I cobbled this bike together, forgot to include a dust cap with the chainring, cranks components. Was able to employ an empty Corona beer can for the job. Thankfully, they are not in short supply. That the paint matches, is a bonus.
I am taking this 20" Schwinn apart and check this out. The chain appears to have a hasp for a master link and the rear rim is a 7 tooth skip tooth Bendix. The serial # is Jxxxxx, you ever see anything like this?
Not a schwinn guy, but got this last night in Dallas Tx..
I just love rust!!!!
Got the lights working.
Project "Stainless Banana"
Pulled out the 52 Deluxe Hornet , pump up the tires , wash & lubed it and took it for a ride
Working on getting my rider ready for spring. Overhauled a set of Mavic rims laced in to low flange campy record hubs and wrapped them in Panaracer tires. Trying out a shorter stem and GB rando bars so I can get my saddle back a little more and not feel like im streching for the bars. Gonna mess around with bar and stem combos/adjustment till spring hits, then ill wrap the bars up. Everthing else got a once over, shell be ready to roll once I can bare the nite time chill.
Peugeot winter project complete,tore it down to the bearings long ago.
