My Daddy had this one in his shop. I saw one on eBay. It’s a fun tool to use, first time for me.
Patina restoration on my badge. I sent my saddle top to Bob U this week.
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.
46 DX, aka" El Burro".
New project as of today
Just needs to be torn down, cleaning and 1 grip, looks like that’s about it. Got it today from my neighbor

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!
1920s DP Harris Rollfast: I test road yesterday. Waiting on a couple more parts, and then paint and final assembly. I started this project 12/27/17
Working on this now
My Twin Bar project is still in the parts collecting stage.
Postwar (47?) Columbia..
Its too cold in the bike shop so I'm hiding out in the woodshop.
Looks the same but I got a 6 hole rack for it. Next is stripping and primer.
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.
That beats the hell outta doing it this way!
Pick this whizz up a while ago it had the wrong frame but correct 47 whiz parts so I got this 47 from a cabe member. Stated to assemble it to what a 47 should look like.
this tool works great for pinstrips!
take it out of the stand and the rear tube blows out,damn!!!
