Man that things looking good, that red’s poppin! Gotta ask what kind of wax you using? Lots of other awesome stuff, is that a green Manton Smith?
That's turning out beautifully!! It's amazing what some patience and attention to detail, how well these old bikes come out. I had a blast working on my 58 X53, I'm sure you are gonna love yours! Outstanding job! Looking forward to the final product. Joe
Thank you again for the compliments. I used Turtle Wax express carnuba spray wax. That is a green Manton & Smith Ranger back there, the repainted one next to it is also a Manton with a Nonpareil badge.
Thank you, I was checking out the one you got from Tinker. It came out great.
Here is the little progress I made last night. Now just the rear hub, rear reflector and chaingaurd.
Finally done, and a quick test ride taken. Will get some daylight pictures tomorrow.
Came out great! How's the ride?
I have to figure out how to get those Davis Deluxe whitewall tires to you. At least to have as original equipment tires.
It rides pretty good. I could use a lay back seat post for it though. Only had to change the stem, pedals and crank which I'm pretty sure wasn't the original anyway. Will need a Delta light base. Here are the before and after pictures. Thank you for all the compliments along the way. Glad it is done and back on the road.
Fabulous thread! Fabulous finish! Just the way I like 'em. Beats a shiny X-53 hands down, at least to me. Thanks for keeping us updated on your progress. Love all the stuff sitting in your shop too.
Here is my last addition to this bike. A 1953 Ohio sesquicentennial bicycle plate.
Absolutely loved looking through this thread. What a great job frank! And boy the finish sure is nice on all of that!
I can't wait to implement your techniques to my X-53. Hoping to get similar results. Maybe I will find the elusive front light, a repop light will do.
Your X53 is fantastic!
What Boris said !
Also.. I want to say thank you for what you have done with your X-53.
And to Dazed & Confused....that’s a fine X-53.
My sincere best of luck with yours as well.
Keep us posted!

Superb!! I did the same with a 1955 Murray. Cool bikes.
Mighty fine, looks just right ...
