I tried re-masking the bezel and the spine and covered the tail for later then sprayed it quickly and brought it in to sit up out of the way to dry. I might have some petroleum jelly left in the bathroom cupboard, have to look.
Okay, here is the tough part. I've got it up on my stand and, well, I at least have the SEAT on. I should have all the parts together in here and in the bicycle box but I haven't found all of it yet. I don't know where the headlamp assembly is yet. And I don't thing I actually have a CHAIN.
And I have a headache, a real one, not figuratively.
Now where is the CRANK?
Too much stuff in here and I had back pains and a bad cold over the last month.
So here goes. I have to go back and find the instructions I got for putting the fork in.
I've spent nearly three weeks with this bike on the stand and IF i could manage to get the 50s Tiger crank to go together I'd move along, but I'd just like THE INSTRUCTIONS.
I realized that the frame already has cups but my big deal isgetting the left side to finish going together and NO, I'm really not figuring it out right now. Where do I find a thread that shows me how it goes together???
I took the bike to the shop and he put it together and I think I can get the other two put together now with the instructions he gave me. Now hopefully the chain will fit right and I can move on to installing the chainguard, fork, stem and bars.
I have two more bikes to install, the Huffy and my Shelby. Now before anyone wonders, my mom couldn't remember how to do it either and she has helped me replace starters in my cars etc. Sometimes if things sit for a while I have to start over or get help because I lose track.
