    This was my very first restoration, amateur restoration, but I really enjoyed it.
    The Elgin had a very good frame, no dents or cracks. Floating hub in the front and original seat.

    Looks awesome. I wish I had the guts to paint my twin bar. The thought of painting 15 individual pieces just throws me.

    It's daunting at the beginning, but once you're on it it'll go easy. The worst part for my was sanding, I just hate sanding, can't stand it. Other than that the rest was a nice challenge with immediate reward. Give it a shot!
