Great job! Now put out the feelers for some nice correct grips. Very, very good job for a 1st time cleanup. Super pics....pat yourself on the back man, way to go!:cool:..
Would this bike have come with torpedo grips?

New handlebar grips and I got the brake hooked up. It's done and it rides like a dream. I didn't do anything with the bent fork. It rides straight so maybe someday the next owner can tackle that issue if they choose to. Thanks to all for the encouragement, and the nice comments. It really helps when you're in unfamiliar territory.

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.
I brought him the bike today and he loved it. He has it on display in his den. He's not putting it back in the garage. He was teary eyed and so was my aunt.

Wow! Wow! Wow! That sure came back to life!

I've had this one for a few years and have been afraid to touch it because I don't want to mess up the patina. But after seeing your bike I'm feeling better! Lol

Outstanding job!

Take the advice from all the experienced minds on this site, and just clean it up nicely, new grease and bearings and ride and enjoy it. I took their advice, except for painting the light, and I'm very glad I did. Yours looks just my uncle's. Get it rolling, it's a hoot to ride. Good luck!
