Finally riding a big boys bike
1. Probably not. I'm trying to match this little gal to mine, and my wheels are not painted. Would I have like to see original patina 'd chrome under the paint...yes.So, given your new understanding that the wheels where originally painted, I have a few questions for you concerning your restoration process...
1. In retrospect, would you have left the bad re-paint job on the rims?
2. What will you do going forward? Re-paint the rims or leave them unpainted?
2. More than likely we will leave the wheels unpainted.
@Bru, I'll share the results here once all the paint is removed and wheels are all cleaned up. Thanks for the inquiry.
Thanks @Barto, it is special. I love that she loves to hang out with me. She's growing fast, and I'm sure she will only ride this bike a year, 2 if I'm lucky. But that's okay. I'll keep this little prewar Rollfast until she has her own kids.Nice, nice, nice! Love the grand kid connection, nothing better ever than spending one on one time like that!
