Last week we moved the bike shop I work at from its location downtown. We had some prewar and postwar bikes on display and dont have much room at our new location so I got this 1925 Excelsior mens. I am planning on redoing it and using it as wall art in my living room. I am going to go with black and brass on this one. Should be cool all my friends think i'm crazy but I think it will be cool.

Troy that is a nice bike as is but will look great in brass and black. Great positioning up on that wall. Would also look good above the fireplace but I see there are more important items already on display. :lol:

awesome man, it's really clean looking already, but will look sweet in brass and black.

I used to do TONS of work (all over Indiana) in the Michigan City area. I was always weirded out by that area.... Plus, the fact that I never wanted to go to Gary, after hearing about the crime there, and thinking, no way, I'm not gonna go.... I HAD to one day, and I literally got 3 blocks from the interstate, hit and run, killed a guy right in front of the place I was making a service call, creepy.... anyway, back on topic!

A lot of the old bikes were actually painted in ink. Thats why if you look at one in the right light it looks slightly blue.

try wiping the respray off with lacquer thinner sometimes reprays come off easy and the original patina might look cool but if they sanded it good it wont matter
