    just wanted to share my Orange Krate build. I brought this thing back to life after finding in a barn. When i found it it had been painted multiple times. As i took the layers of paint off i found the original orange! I'm almost done with this build. Just need to get the chain guard screened. Here is some before and after...

    Looks great! Woulda been cool if you could have saved the original paint though. V/r Shawn

    yeah there was just too much paint on top of the original. Had to scrub and ended up taking orange off. I did keep the original behind the head badge as proof it really is a '68 orange krate!
