Found this in south san jose. And it came in pieces. S2 wheels are wrong....no headlight yet....blue original paint under dust house paint spray paint and punk rock skull flag im guessing....gonna clean it up in the coming weeks months....will need to touch up and or repaint some parts....kind of excited...back in 1997 the gentleman who owned this had a bike sale which featured old bike balloon projects....i was in my early 20s then and at that very moment the bug bit me...i didnt know anything about the classics....20 years later im bringing it back from the dead....the man has since passed away and ive been told this was stashed away in a box where it stayed for decades....wish me luck...ill be posting lots of pics including putting skills to the test that ive learned over the years. If you beg to differ or can offer better methods dont be shy....

Great project. I have a set of correct rims, white w/ blue pin striping. LMK if interested. It may look better with blue and white pin striping though.

jacob....thanks for the offer...i scored a pair of blue ones with prewar hubs a day ago. May not match the dx blue but ive seen a dxs with mix match blue wheels and the dx blue which im guessing is egg shell blue....ill find out when it comes together.

I m going to use this post war balloon fork with og blue paint....hopefully the blue matches somewhat and no buggered hole...a bonus...but screw hole appears to have never been tapped....odd...

The front fender has had its flare chopped off.....i just got ahold of a front fender with a good flare and may settle for the ivory fenders with blue stripes instead...like that look, but ill have to get the fender roller out and see if i can save the fender and reshape the chopped end....first....otherwise im really tempted to do the color switch
