That is so simple, didn't think of it. Bringing it inside. In a few hours I leave for a Mississippi Delta blues tour. I have rounded up two bikes in Mississippi that friends have donated for us to ride down there. The weather down there has not been all that hot, still in the 30sF at night and a lot of rain but I'll probably wear shorts and t shirts. I hope to be back before the end of the month so I can post a final picture. Right now I can't get into my shop. Three days of 40sF and now teens. The ice and snow pack in my driveway is way above the shop floor so the water in there was over the top of my snow boot laces and now it froze. I'm frozen out so it's a good time to take off eh. Hopefully when I get back I can start dealing with the flood and get to my bike in the attic to post a picture. Who knows, I might even be able to take off the fork and paint it. I could also paint the whole fork black, that way there would be no masking. The paint and brakes are all that remain to finish it. I'm glad I didn't try to work on my 30s Colson. I was able to get it out of the original ice on the shop floor during the thaw. It's hanging up but my other project, a 1946 Westfield has the wheels frozen into the floor. It's frame is behind the wood stove. My 1968 Triumph motorcycle has ice over the tires and onto the rims. My other winter projects, a 1938-41 Schwinn New World WR-1 and a 1900 track bike are safe in the bathroom, but my wife wants them out of there so she can shower. I'll toss those in the spare bedroom before I leave.I can't imagine it as cold as you've got it and trying to work on my bike. The chill here is part of why I've happily accepted the half stripped worn off finish on mine. You could take the fork in the house and take it down to bare metal with a bit of steel wool.That's a finish that looks good on just about any style fork. In any event you know when to post the completed bike... March 31st.
