That little thing is cool......good luck with it.....
Thanx, Jack. It's coming along. Spent much of today cleaning. Mrs Ridesolo is making this a joint project w/ me and is working wonders on the chrome. Our mixture of aluminum foil and glass cooktop cleaner is doing the trick. There is still some pitting, but from about 3' away it's looking good. She's making decisions on colors, etc, too. We went over yesterday afternoon and bought a set of wheels like the ones Hurco550 got for his Rupp. This bike is a '70 and came w/ 10" spoked wheels when new so these new ones, being 10", fit right in w/ the existing fenders, etc. There is a fair amount of rust on the original rims that may or may not have cleaned up, but the front is missing some spokes so by the time I got spokes and new tires & tubes I would have had more invested than just getting the new wheels/tires. Projects like this drive me crazy because as I think them through I start to get too elaborate and have to pull on the reins. Disk brake set-up wouldn't be difficult, especially on the front... While pressure washing the frame and some parts I slipped and went down hard on my lover back and elbows. The little ramp on the north side of the shop never gets any sun and can be slick when wet. I got up pretty quick and seemed ok, but in a couple minutes I got dizzy and faint and passed put momentarily. Mrs was about to call the squad and I was at about 9 on a 10 scale in agreement w/ her but started to clear up. OK now, but it'll probably take a crane to get me out of bed in the morning. Oh well, at least I didn't break anything.
Wow cory! It's coming along nicely man. The neighbors are going to have to start keeping up with you lol
