    Those colors are nice. It's going to be really good looking when it's done.

    Back at her fenders. Lead paint melting away....sloowwwly. I prefer to chemically strip old paint to reveal what the part looked like when it was made. Not to mention, lead paint is dangerous if licked.

    Okay, time for a little progress update. Picking away,(3 months later) I finally have the fenders "nude". Final clean, and off to paint we go.

    How do you get anything done without drooling on everything?

    That's beautiful, truly. It's guys like you that can inspire the rest of us to follow the many steps that it takes to resurrect something so well.
    No offense please, but all those risqué girlie peep shots we saw were of a man's bike. I thought only the drop loops were considered "she."
    Wonderful post, thanks for all the detail.

    You have done amazing work! I am not sure I could sell it after making it that beautiful. BTW I love the color combo.

    Thank you for all the kind comments. As some of you know,,I don't usually sell anything Iver Johnson. It will be tough to let this one go, but I do have a prospective buyer for this bike. My eyes are set on a bigger prize.

    Update time,, Well my original intent was to sell what you've seen, as is, but it's gonna end up with some more nickel parts on it.

    Finish it. You can always get more dough for a complete bike that for a half-baked project. It's looking outstanding already. Great Job!!!
