HARPO

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
Work continues, but I wanted to put it back together anyway to see how far its come. 🙂 Saddle and grips still need to be cleaned, and more rust removed from the chain guard. Forks are about as white as they can be on the outside, so I'll see when I remove the wheels as to how clean the insides will turn out...

To bad the front rack is toast because of being so bent. 😕 And for whatever reason, the bolt for the twin lights won't fit back properly (I remember it was a pain to remove it!) into the bracket. I'll have to delve farther into that, as I don't want to strip it.

24” or 26” rack? I’ve got both, let me know which you need, and we can try and make a deal.

More AAUGH!! I forgot that Windex eats off the silk-screening...so goodbye SCHWINN and DEBUTANTE on the chain guard.(and some on the tank). 😢 I really am my own worst !@#$%^ enemy. 😕

The paint is looking decent so far, considering I was just going to keep parts off of the bike initially. Spending way more time on this bike than I had planned to, but lets see what happens when I'm done. Worst case, it becomes a parts bike after all.

have found that a product called SoftScrub is just the ticket for removing the grey schmutz on the rear reflector housing

think she would look better if she were to eschew Stewy

@juvela The grey "Schmutz" is actually the leftover residue of the fake chrome that Schwinn used on the tail lights and the dual head lights. 🙂

I am going to invent a voice player designed for hiding under any rusty bike seat. It would play, "I love you Daddy."or "Please don't amputate my appendages." This would get us through the sloppy part and accelerate the bonding impulse.
"I'm more exciting than green paper." "Please put down the ax. It scares me. Do you rubdown and soak all your girls?"

Just don't stick your finger in her tank hole and you'll be fine. 😂
My childhood included an unfortunate incident involving a bike hole and some fake fur. 1955 Moms in our small town (loaded with steeples) thought that my artwork was too advanced for public viewing. We hid Playboys from our Boy Scout paper drives, in our dirt fort, for reference.
