HARPO

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
Just came home with it a little while ago. Another Craigslist find, about 20 miles from me. Original owner was the guys father, and the bike appears to have been taken care of. This will be one of the easier detailings I've done in a while. Tires are in great shape. I took it for a quick spin just now and it shifts like butter. Worth the $100 I paid for it, IMHO.

All the hookups are there for a Computer, but he didn't have it and didn't know where it was. I have one, but I'm not sure if I'll hook it up anyway. It will need new tape, but right now that appears to be pretty much it.

Enjoy the photos! 😃

What polish do you use on the paint Harpo? You always do such a fantastic job on the detailing.

@bikerbluz I use Meguiar's Ultimate Polish and then Gliptone Carnuba Wax. BUT...I first use Turtle Wax Rubbing Compound (if needed) and then Turtle Wax Polishing Compound.

Wore out three sets of tires already!
I'm surprised to see that it was made in Japan. I would have expected Greenville.
I think by '86 that model was being made in the Greenville plant.
