Rattman13

Finally riding a big boys bike
Got the '39 Elgin Klunk-rat back together, and took it out for a nice ride. The ride went well except for the occasional squeak from the 1972 varsity rat trap pedals, gotta figure out how to lube the outer bearings.

Nice ride rattman! If you take the pedals off and place them thread side up then flood the thread side with penetrating oil and leave them that way the oil should make it’s way down the tube and to the outside bearings

Tilt it to each side & spray a Good lubricant towards each shaft where the bearings seat; use something that doesn't evaporate like WD40 crap. I like Liquid Wrench with Cerflon. Even some regular 5w30 oil will do but it's messy eventually so use at discretion
