    My Daddy had this one in his shop:D. I saw one on eBay. It’s a fun tool to use, first time for me.

    Tonight I laced up a Small Flange Fore-Wheel Brake for my ride. The spokes were rusted so I dipped them in CHEM-DIP for a few minutes followed by a light scrub using extra fine steel wool. Then I dipped the spokes in concentrated HCl for a few seconds followed by a good rinse. The ‘high side’ spokes needed to be trimmed about 2mm so the rim sits dead-center in the fork (rim centering). I installed some Good Year All Weather G-3 tires.

    I love the look of painted rims. That's how I built up a 37 motorbike. After many years of looking at it I decided the drum brake deserved to have the hoop in the same finish. For now it has Murray (M.O. stamped) rims. Although my bike was not original paint. This c model appeared as if it was built this way.

    Project! "1/2 And 1/2.
    Mock up before frame paint.
    1948 JC Higgins using a 40's Hawthorne front end. Front end, headlight, tank, bobbed rear fender, and youth seat top, will be sealed bare metal, while frame will be painted. Really have gotten to enjoy the bare metal stuff for Rats!

    1916 Indian Project. I just removed the red paint (almost all of it) from the handlebars. Next step remove the cream paint from the wood rims and install single tube tires.
