Riding a '37 Dayton Super Streamline
If your talking about this one then I would have to disagree. The details and level of workmanship is what separates an amateur restoration from a quality restoration. Anytime I see one of these cheap Persons repo saddles it tells me corners were cut. The paint pattern is not correct on this bike, the braces are painted, grips are wrong, the badge is not painted correctly and held on with pop rivets-c'mon man , I'm not sure the bars and stem are correct, and it appears someone chromed the seat binder. This is just the quick once over. You are right--it's the details and whoever restored this bike missed them. All that aside not a bad looking bike and Copake is the place to get the best money but no reserve auctions can be crap shoots. There will be bikes that surprise us in both ways in this auction--under/over achieving. V/r ShawnReally fabulous Roadmaster restoration on the auction list. Congradulations to a super restorer for the new paint, chrome, rubber, leather etc. Example of what can be achieved with hard work on the details of that era's bikes.
