    Vince must have been doing something right, I sold him one of those chainguards. Of course, that was years ago, before I realized what a jerk he was.

    Started with a tired 36 girls Colson. Has a cool dark brown rusty, stippled surface EVERYWHERE (frame, fenders, crank, chainwheel, rims)! WD40 and xxxx steel wool followed by boiled linseed oil took care of that.
    Got a convertible tank from Jim Harrison at TRM to muscle her up a bit. Seat, bars, stem, chainguard and reflector we’re laying around or sourced on CABE/eBay. Fat Franks brown&whites look pretty sharp! Final fitting of the tank and adding TRM light kit, sorting out rear hub and should call it a day.
