    My Twin Flex all rattle caned up!

    I'm new to The CABE, but not to bikes.
    This is my first post so forgive me if I screw it up.
    I wish I could have saved the paint on this one but it was too far gone.
    This thing was kind of a bracket case when I got it.
    I really just wanted to get some paint on it to keep it from rusting further and it just came together. I may just leave it alone. What do the CABErs think?
    Any major criticisms from the Huffman experts?

    Thanks.

    I,m almost certain it's a 38 but I'm not completely sure.
    Maybe someone can help me out here?
    Maybe point out if I'm headed in the right direction?

    You may wish to post this as a thread in '33 to '65 balloon bikes as a question. More will see there.

    I painted my Monark almost 35 year's ago with I think it was Rustoleum green and white.I didn't have the chainguard at the time so that was a different paint, As far as using a spraygun being more durable look at the pic's ,spray bombed in 1980. Doesn't look so bad to me...Bill 100_8401.JPG 100_8402.JPG 100_8404.JPG 100_8412.JPG 100_8418.JPG 100_8425.JPG

    Here's one I did a while back. I never use clear, it would make it look too shiny.
