Not far at all. It’s still disassembled. We are remodeling the house and my workspace is being used up as storage for now so haven’t had time to clean up and work on the bike. Decided to at least put some time into it and work on the taillight housing instead. Should hopefully have time in the...
Just an update. Haven’t really been putting too much time into this resto-mod but finally had this past weekend free to make small progress.
Designed the taillight housing in SolidWorks and 3D printed it. The lenses came off a Delta Hi-Fin Twin Taillight. This was supposed to be the prototype...
As for the rear taillight. I know they are extremely hard to find. Especially the twin taillight. But it looks to me that the tail light lenses are the same as the Delta Hi-Fin Twin Tail lights? Was thinking of possibly picking one of those up and 3D print the housing.
An updates. Bike has been disassembled and currently in an oxalic acid bath. Was not able to disassemble the springer. Have no idea how it comes off. There is so much rust so hope this bath helps. I know im going to be scrubbing for hours.
I have no idea how you guys get these catalogs but i'm loving all the support here. Thank you!
Mine is definitely going to be a resto-mod. I love the patina and the vintage look on bikes but with this Flightliner, i wanted to look fresh off the shelf with a few updated modifications.
Thank you I found it! Had so much grime I overlooked it. The photo is hard to tell but it says
Correct me if i'm wrong but i think I know the 502 is for Sears and the 46060 is the catalog # and 93218 is the identification #. Is there any way to determine the actual year...
Also, i looked for the serial numbers on the dropout and i was not able to find them. If they are not there is there anywhere else they might be? I looked everywhere but i could not honestly see anything anywhere on the bike.
Thank you for the oxalic acid recommendation. I will be trying that on the chrome parts. I just placed my amazon order and will probably work on it this weekend.
I was thinking of having the frame, fork, tank and rack sandblasted and powder coated. I got a quote for $240 for all parts. Don't...
First ever restoration project. I believe all parts are original. Except the tank, that I bought separate. I’m excited to take this journey and can’t wait to get working on this. Any restoration tips are welcomed!
