    Got this rusty Shelby on a trade Sunday at the Arlington heights swap. IMG_2176 (2).JPG Don't see many boy's Shelby bikes around Chicago, especially with the "Jimmy D" springer on them. This bike is rusty and rough. But it is a Shelby, and the tank is solid.
    Stripped it down today, IMG_2177 (2).JPG Heavy Oxalic acid bath for the springer. IMG_2174 (3).JPG Burned heavy house paint off rack, tank, and chain guard. IMG_2175 (3).JPG Original paint was red. Might stick with that, or black. After this frame is painted I will have 4 bikes to assemble this winter.:)
    Sold my old Shelby at Memory Lane this past spring...... 015.JPG sure do miss it...:(
