Got the coke bottle grips and the Morrow rear end parts for the 1934 Lawlor's. I keep running into problems though. One of the parts I bought for the Morrow rear end was wrong and and of poor quality. I also found another part I need to replace. UGH!

Check it out guys, maybe someone can help me? The little cone I bought is maybe an 1/8" shorter and doesn't have the groove like the original. The one I bought is also threaded all the way through, but the original isn't. As you can see, the other part is gaulded. Thanks for any help. Barry

Rust rust and lots of missing paint.
I know, but for some reason I love it. I guess it's the head badge and the fact that its the bike that started the balloon tired bike craze. This company is also in a book I'm working on. I have the wheels, but I'm working on them. I also have a long spring Mesinger seat I need to put back together. A Lucky Seven stem with new chrome is on the way. Now I need some Stainless fenders and a drop stand. Barry

Yahoo! I finally got some Oxalic Acid. Now I need to take the Liberty Bell Special apart the rest of the way, and see how the stuff works. I've seen what looked like miracles happen with this stuff, now I get to try it myself. Barry

Any advice on how to use it, would greatly be appreciated.:D

I got the re-chromed lucky seven post today and I made my first attempt at covering a bicycle seat, for the 1934 Lawlor's. Of course, I'm not happy with it. No Mesinger stamp in the leather and I ended up with a couple little wrinkles in the leather. I don't think other people will see it, but it sure bugs me! Ha Ha Ha

It sure looks a lot better than the other seat I had on it while I was working on the Mesinger. I left the hardware as is for now. Once I get all the parts together and have the bike completely assembled so I can test ride it, I'm going to have it painted. I've never had one painted before, I'm generally an original kind of guy. Barry

I'm still searching for some stainless fenders and a tank. I'd like to trade the tank in it for the one I need. I know, wishful thinking.

Latest project is a 40-41 bent tube Elgin. Having a little fun with this one, got it mocked and ready to take apart for soda blast. Front end is Elgin, fender over, rear fender is the rear section of an Elgin rear fender I had left over. Wheels are originals in nice shape.

I got the cross brace handle bars and a drop stand in the mail today. Two steps closer! Tomorrow I get to buy fenders and maybe wheels. :smile:

I think it's pretty cool the Lawlor's bicycle was bought off Craigslist, in Lincoln Nebraska. It's the same city Lawlor's Sporting Goods is still located in, to this day. They make clothing and don't sell bikes anymore though. Barry

I bought fenders and wheels from Dave today. I spent hours playing with the fenders, straightening, taking out dents and polishing them. I think they'll work out pretty good.

I've been busy cleaning and fitting the Stainless fenders I bought from Dave. I'm getting lots of the scratches polished out. Had to do a little trimming, drilling and filing to make the rear fender fit just right. I'm happy with it. Now it's polish, polish and polish. I bought a tea cup light today. Just a few more parts including a battery can and a tank and I'll be home free. I'll clean and install the wheels tomorrow.

I can't answer this. Like the typical enthusiast I have several that will probably take me a decade to finish due to always picking up another. :D oh and the inability to true wheels in house. So the poor things just sit.
