    1938 Nonpareil Bicycle Works Project

    That’s pretty cool! I figured it was just a one off decoration. It’s a dang movement!

    1938 Nonpareil Bicycle Works Project

    I’ll see if I can research a picture and parts for the drop stand. Thanks for the info. Do you think it would have had a different rack originally, or none?

    1938 Nonpareil Bicycle Works Project

    I didn’t. I wonder what inspired a previous owner to decorate with it.

    1938 Nonpareil Bicycle Works Project

    I picked up this 38 CWC project for pretty cheap recently. I believe the black is the original paint. The red looks to be someone’s custom job as it’s a bit sloppy. I’m working through it mechanically and wondering what information might be out there on any missing options or parts. There...

    Newbie with Fresh Alley Find Progress Report

    Thanks! Looking for some validation. Here’s a shot of the new decals. Waiting for the correct pin striping tool so I can stripe the rims, then a clear coat on those parts, then back together for the first test drive.

    Newbie with Fresh Alley Find Progress Report

    Ah, unfortunately they have pretty much disintegrated. They are plastic “Kwik Speed”

    Newbie with a Fresh Alley Find

    The serial number reads: SC 65311 for some reason the 11 is stamped upside down

    Newbie with a Fresh Alley Find

    Something like this work? I’m trying to understand the comment about bmx pedals and cost. Not looking to do much more than put something functional and appropriate on.
