Wheels, tires, chainguard, seat installed...getting closer. Electrical components proving difficult.

Rear wheel alignment and tensioning of the chain with that chainguard is tricky. Now if it would just stop snowing I could ride it!

Just following up with latest of the rebuild, 98% complete minus all the electrical items, front light, tail light, and horn... Oh well, she rides and as @Mr. Monkeyarms says, can't hear nothing but tires on the pavement! Gracious thanks to everyone who has offered knowledge, insight, wisdom, tricks of the bike trade, and parts... Cheers

Looks great! Those CWC bikes from that vintage have the best lines! You made the right decision with the black wall. You need something in the front loader. Maybe something unexpected and a subtle surprise when getting close and checking out that texture!

Any thoughts on what to put in the front loader, I agree, needs something rather than a large gaping hole lol... I do have the guts from another ea 6 rib front loader but haven't drilled out the rivets and tried this yet...

Very nicely rebuilt! A fine example of a mostly-together bike no matter how you sort out the finish. Oxolic acid could be experimented with later if you wanted on all the parts to tone down the brown look a bit. It certainly sat in the humidity over time and most likely/fortunately the chickens had flown the coop about that time.:p Love it!

Great job Josh! Looks amazing! :hearteyes:

The guts of the top loader on my Harvard are gone so a cap from a big jug of something that was the right diameter was used to fill the hole until something better comes along....

Not very imaginative but makes a nice blackout light and fills the hole.

An eyeball, Photo of a hula girl, Something different. Just to fill the space until the parts show up. Great bike. Lots of work but looks to have paid off.
