Donor 68 girls bike.
I first threw it together as a coaster. But I figured that since I had the 5 speed sprocket from the boys frame, why not make it the 5 speed it should be. I had everything except a shifter.
The correct Simplex shifter and derailleur were located.
Then came the paint stripping, metal prep and painting!
The assembly of the bike was easy and straight forward. Biggest challenge for me was reviving the original headbadge to its former glory.
Everything finally came together once the decals arrived. It looks so much like the catalog photo.
All the pieces parts came together to form fun riding bike.
Because of this bike, a 68 Vista Torino 300 was spotted at a swap meet by KJV. He was kind enough to pack it up and send it me. I have also shown its rebuild in MBBO #5. Here they are together.
