Cruisin' on my Bluebird
MY GOD!!! Please...if that is indeed original paint & plating, PLEASE do not strip & "restore" this bike. It deserves to be preserved as much as possible. Put your feelers out and take your time finding the correct parts...or some close period pieces. I have never seen one of these, & I'm pretty sure most Cabe members are with me on that. WOW!!! I am in awe....

Oh ma gawd.
This is a beautiful machine. Very nice, congratulations.
Heck, I would leave the welded together crank arm on it, just part of it's story.
That frame is artwork.
Everything nicely fluted("corrugated") frame tubes and big ones at that! This may be a sort-of-clean-it but not much bike as there cannot be many. Even has an early 3-piece crank on it! Wheels, seat and grips aren't too much to ask for. Looks like no fenders needed either.
Ditto to all of the above.Very unusual bike with the fluted frame tubes. I agree with others, I would concentrate on "preserving" this bike and find period correct wheels, seat, etc. for it but do not "restore" it. I would not want to do anything that might remove any of that original paint.
