    image.jpeg image.jpeg 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.

    Recommenced work on the convertable rear BSA tandem, 3 1/2 hours in and the frame is starting to come good. WP_20170107_15_24_12_Pro.jpg
    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. 20170106_183035.jpg 20170107_151612.jpg

    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? P1200299.JPG P1200298.JPG P1200295.JPG P1200301.JPG P1200302.JPG P1200300.JPG P1200304.JPG
