    A little farther along. These rims had silver paint all over them. Took a whole day the strip them down. They had a decent patina under all that silver.

    Alright. Aside from lighting, for night riding, this jalopy is done. This bike rides so easy and smooth. Especially with the smaller girls sprocket on it. Still have to patina the newer screws, but other than that, gonna just ride it. 20180103_152825.jpg 20180103_152845.jpg 20180103_152910.jpg 20180103_153019.jpg 20180103_153033.jpg 20180103_152935.jpg 20180103_152920.jpg

    Thanks Cowboy. It all started with the frame you had. I wanna thank other Cabers as well. @tech549 @ESTATESELLERS2010 for helping with some parts. It' because of this community that another one is back on the road.
    Ride on
