The seat post must have been rusted for decades but I was able to remove the sprocket assembly and squirt some kroil down the seat tube, a little heat and sticking it in a vise it twisted free!!
WIN!

It's been a while, but found a cheap mud flap and tail lights so just spitballing how this looks, will probably paint the flap when it comes together. What you think??

I've settled on a color. Good old rust-oleum satin LAGOON ! First attempt at a patina / rusty look, hope it looks believable. Sorry
It's taking a long time, everything bought just have to mock it up, ride it, then tear it apart for grease paint and final assembly.

After some tweaking of the rear drop outs / frame. Installed the matching rear rim with matching dart lighting tire, skip tooth chain, original chainring and Torrington #8 pedals. Rides and shifts like a dream and stops on a dime! Will shake it out for a few more miles and then try a patina paint job. My son was amazed how nice it rode.
