I was starting to wonder how long this project was going to stall. After work I wanted to get an hour in on my bike and my son checked in on what I was up to. “Hey, do you want to work on your panther?” I asked him. “No. I’ll just hang out with you for now.” And as fast as he replied he left. Well okay then, that was fast! Fast forward a few hours and USPS delivers the left pedal for my 1904 Sterling...as I was unboxing the pedal I go into the story of having a bike that’s over 100 years old and was missing the left pedal and that I found it on the cabe. He was fascinated so we jammed to the basement to make sure the pedal fit. He was anxious to build up and rode the turn of the century bike with his name on the head badge. I said “why don’t we finish the panther first” and he was all in. “Let’s do it!” He said. So we put in an hour before he needed to get to bed.
Some fender dent removal work...
Then buffing the fender put with some brasso
Then mounting it up with the rear carrier after spending half an hour to find some hardware! Doh!
As she sits after tonight.
We need a rear reflector...anyone have a proper reflector for a panther? Let me know.
