Just got this Beauty. I love the patina. Will work on bringing out the details ( What is best .......Evaporust, or WD40 ? ) Can't figure out what to do about the tassels.............never had 'em on a bike before. I'm an older guy.........................isn't this a kid's thing. I'm sure these have been on this bike for decades. Since I want to "Preserve" ,and not restore this Gem.................What should I do about the tassels ?

Sweet project. Did you have to mess with the light or did it work?

Definitely axe the streamers. My little Sister had them on her bike along with a pin wheel. :p Get one of Joe's Surspins for that ride.

Hi, The light was "Pre Wired" by the previous owner. all done with modern wire. I'm gonna change it to cloth covered wire. The lights on the rack work as well ( all from the switch under the tank) horn unit was dead, but I have since put a different one in........and it is LOUD !!!!

It depends on the bike in my opinion.
My Electric had tassels for awhile.
I broke one when I crashed.
I think those match the bike and would be cool to leave; if you can handle the bullys;)

Run em if ya like em! Lots of the kids used to back then, boys and girls. Don't worry about the girly comments, hell where I live any grown man on a bicycle is a girly man, and other things! Ha!!
