That blue badge looks awesome on a blue bike. That cleaned up amazingly.It's amazing what you find under all the dirt and grime when you clean, polish and wax it. It's too bad there won't be a big WOW factor when it's done and I give it back to my uncle. He really hadn't seen it in 60+ years except for the 10 minutes it took me to tie it to the back of my car after I got it down from the rafters.

still there:i just noticed that this thread has an "Urgent" flag. Does anybody know how to remove that? When I started the thread I didn't specify it was urgent.
After washing with car soap I just used a liquid polishing compound, lightly, then car wax. It's got lots of chips and surface rust but the surface is smooth now.What a nice old bike! Your uncle might be very surprised. What did you use to clean the paint?
I plan on getting a picture with him when it's done. Here's his before picture, the first time he had seen it in 60+ years.I really love this restoration project. If you wanna get me all teary eyed, post the picture with your Uncle with the bicycle when it’s done. That’ll get me where I live. Keep up the good work.
