I picked this Admiral badged '39 up at an auto swap meet for the parts that were on it, and planned to part it out. When I got home I threw some tires on and changed the chain guard and seat pan. Then I made the mistake of wiping down the frame. When I saw there was color coming back I decided to see if I could save the bike. Now I've reached the point of no return. I'm trying to build a low buck pre-war rider with parts I can scrounge around here. The frame turned out decent, working on the fenders today.
