I am envious of that haul. Those gold wheels are too legit.

This little guy has not been forgotten. Iím slowly collecting parts. The gold paint on these rims doesnít appear to be available in the US. Iíve been testing different off-the-shelf paints to find the right match, hoping I can find it that way without having to dig through catalogs of paint chips. Low and behold, I think Iíve found a decent match (old rim with tire, newly painted rim without):



Needles to say, HM rims in good shape are not as easy to find as I thought. For all the bikes I hauled in, thatís one part I have a short supply of.

Starting rust removal and rebuilding forks.  Everything rusty is getting a bath in phosphoric acid.



I worked the forks with Scotch Brite and phosphoric acid, then I followed up with a Simichrome polish...





Also trying to rebuild the handlebar control switches...
