Budz did you do anything to the frame besides clean it?
You bring your feet and I'll bring the pedals!
Yeah, let's see that old broad pedal her exerciser now!
Well I took all the bearing sets out and cleaned and greased them. I put the bobbed front fender on the back and switched out the pedals. I also made my own seat pan and put new/different pedals on it.
I like the patina on the frame. Do you think I should do more? I have until the end of the month for this, but only the end of the week for the ride we have next weekend.
I hope you don't think I was asking if all you did to the bike was clean it.
I meant did you apply anything to the frame after cleaning it. I thought it kinda had a sheen to it like it was clear-coated or oiled or something.
LOL, sorry Randy. I know you didn't mean anything. I catch myself wondering what else I can do to the bike since I'm not used to having a bike done (ridable) so fast.
I used a degreaser all over the frame with special attention to the thick spots by the BB and head tube. I then wiped the whole bike down with WD-40. I didn't really leave anyone though. I was just using it as another cleaner. The frame doesn't feel oily or anything. I think it might look 'shiny' since I used my wifes camera for the last few pics instead of my phone.
I have a piece of scrap leather that matches the frame color very close in the basement light, but I want to see it outside in the sun so I don't think I will get it covered before the ride this weekend - if I even do.
