    A scrub brush and dish soap will clean up old tires pretty well. As for value of the bike, I tend to like vintage tires on bikes but I don't think they add value to the bike unless there in perfect condition.

    1938-41 Elgin Twin-Bar

    soaking the wheels again since there completely disassembled, should make clean up easier.

    Before and after

    It's kind of a hard to see a difference, but in the before pic the whole bike is covered in red house paint. The after is the OG orange paint.

    Here's a link to my Flyer gallery, it would be pretty funny if she ended up being a post war. https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/prewar-long-tank-huffman-dixie-flyer.119506/ Love the Huffman such nice bikes, yours will clean up beautifully.

    Ballbearing grease is fine for these old bikes, as for trueing a wheel. I'm a little obsessive so I try to get side to side moment as close as I can to the width of a nickel.

    1938-41 Elgin Twin-Bar

    The fender does not have the mount for a light, but if I could find a head shroud that doesn't cost a small fortune then I'd love the duel light set up.

    1938-41 Elgin Twin-Bar

    pinstripes are really hard to save, there not as rugged as the old enamel. I haven't found a good way of saving them yet. 0000 grit steel wool and gasoline is what I use to take rattle can paint off. House paint and vintage spray paint is much tougher, so I use thin layers of cirtistripe to...

    1938-41 Elgin Twin-Bar

    Glad my bike gives some motivation. Here's some more inspiration, built this last year. Brought it back from the brink of a really bad house paint job. Might not look like the same bike, but it is. Took over 30 hours to clean, but was totally worth it.

    Musselmann hubs are straight forward rebuilds, plus it will improve the ride quality.
  41. Scribble

    1938-41 Elgin Twin-Bar

    Removing original paint is a last ditch thing for me, in this case the build demanded it.
  42. Scribble

    1938-41 Elgin Twin-Bar

    Did a light mock up, and a whole lot of sanding/grinding on the fenders. You can see here that the fenders were missmatched pretty badly.

    1938-41 Elgin Twin-Bar

    OA work better then expected, the only problem is that it revealed some unwanted things. Two things to be exact, 1st is the fenders ended up being mismatched paint. So I just took them down to bare steel. 2nd is the wheels also ended up being mismatched, I did not notice this because of how...

    1935 Flying Cloud, Shelby Camelback

    You could try this stuff, it worked wonders on my 41 Murray. It worked wonders for this bike, it just takes a long time. I'd put a coat on wait 5min then wipe it off, did that about 150 times and the result was almost 90% of the original paint being saved.
