Wore out three sets of tires already!
I just tried a Gulco 375 with the bezel that I have in my stash. The bezel is not large enough but I could use just the reflector if you all think that's appropriate.

Keep those suggestions coming, please. Much appreciated!

Yeah, the round middleweight reflectors never had the chrome trim bezel, at least I've not come across one large enough to match those fenders. I think yours is the 6 pie plastic, where a bike that early would have had a 2 pie plastic. Makes for a good hole filler though.

Look Ma, No Hands!
Just sharing the progress so far. Thanks again for all of the tips and suggestions. You are an amazing group and your help is much appreciated. I switched the hand brake and shifter as suggested, got the shifter cleaned up and to work, sort of. That's definitely still a work in progress. Replaced front tire with a Schwinn Westwind from my stash and added the rear reflector, again from my stash, cleaned up the handgrips and did a little bit of other general cleaning. Still a ways to go, but even now the bike rides nice.
