Porkchop & Applesauce

Finally riding a big boys bike
Good morning Cabers! Thought I would share the details on this “Red bike”. I honestly believe that it’s a 1945 dx! Your right.....I can’t prove it but here’s what I found when I was cleaning it up. I’ll start with the vin number X87643. Small font prewar style numbers. It has a 38 date marked crank with prewar style bearing cages. The frame has thin forward facing drop outs like the ones known to be used on the 46’s. The head set cups and top race nut are not plated...like war time parts. The goose neck appears to be prewar style. All of these parts I believe are original to this bike. So that being said we also added some more rare parts to this build! We added a tapered kick stand, raised letter AS seat post clamp, deep rescessed rear screw fender light housing, bottle cap Schwinn pedals, and black out hub drop centers to this very special bike! Hope you can geek out on this one too! Lmao!

Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
A model/ model railroad trick . I took a shiny chain ring and made it a rusty one for my ratrod bike project.

1) clean shiny chainring
2) oxide red primer
3) a mist of black
4) smells like apple pie - cover with cinnamon
5) After a couple of coats of matte clear
6) apply sea salt
7) spray with Grey primer
8) let dry and brush off the salt & lightly spray with the matte clear.
WEllen see what happens.....

Rebuilt the new departure model d hub on the 34 Colson. I'll be bummed if this doesn't fix the squeek. Trying to get all my bikes rolling smooth for summer. Didn't use oil.... Just grease. Lots of grease. :). It's nice working with decent and complete parts.

I’m curious to know what grease you used when rebuilding the new departure model d hub/brake. I have one to do, but would like to use the right grease. Did the squeak go away? Thanks for the help
