Finally riding a big boys bike

Hi, picked this up a few months ago from a fellow member, thanks !! It was missing most of the original parts but did have the dogleg crank, sprocket, guard and handle bars. I faithfully reproduced the basket mount thanks to fellow member CWCman measurements, also found a saddle I liked !! I want to ride this so I ordered new rims with S/A front drum. Fake and a rear 3 speed nexus. I'm going to order a skip tooth rear sprocket in hopes of keeping it skip tooth. Going to try my luck at a patina paint job, the red has got to go. I could use a better brake lever and a Carlisle lighting 26" rear tire to match the front. Rear rim is not installed yet .. thanks for looking. Mike.

Nice looking project so far. That front wheel and brake look good. Now you just need a basket and a custom sign.

I've settled on a color. Good old rust-oleum satin LAGOON ! First attempt at a patina / rusty look, hope it looks believable. Sorry
It's taking a long time, everything bought just have to mock it up, ride it, then tear it apart for grease paint and final assembly. IMG_5961.JPG

After some tweaking of the rear drop outs / frame. Installed the matching rear rim with matching dart lighting tire, skip tooth chain, original chainring and Torrington #8 pedals. Rides and shifts like a dream and stops on a dime! Will shake it out for a few more miles and then try a patina paint job. My son was amazed how nice it rode.

Love seeing stuff like this. A great bicycle, you, and your son. Thanks for sharing. Look forward to seeing the paint job in the future. Are you going to make a sign for it?

It is cool seeing a 13yo boy riding a 80yo Bike !! I am going to make a sign, thinking of a early hot rod shop theme since it has the modern hoops. I may paint the signage or have a family member who is an artist do it. Thanks for the kind words.

Doesn't seem to be to much interest on this bike here but I'll post till it's done. It rides great better than any 50's or 60's bike I have had, has a more laid back position! Here is the newer basket and my made from original measurements basket mount, patina painted as best I could.

The metal sign should tie it all in. Looks great!

Were you able to get the brackets?

Nobody has gotten back to me so I am using these cable brackets. Had these already so free is good! Have the sign cut out but not sure what to put on it or if I want to paint it or have a pro do it. It's basically done except for small details. I'm glad I went with modern rims with a drum front and 3 speed coaster it is a real nice cruiser!
