    Plastic chroming?

    You could contact the Little Motor Kar Co. in PA. They re-chrome model car parts, he may be able to re-chrome larger plastic parts.

    ??Are Bontrager Hank Tire Still avaiable??

    I bought a pair online last summer for $50 shipped, can't remember from where though, I searched on google and 50 bucks for the pair was the least expensive I could find.

    Schwinn Convertible ...SEX CHANGE

    I wonder if this tank could be adapted to a late '30's ladies Elgin. Would make it almost look like a Bluebird.

    Very Overpriced Huffy

    I lucked out on CL a couple months ago when I picked up the duplicate of the bike I received Christmas 1965....a pristine Huffy Galaxie for the princely sum of $40. Even had its original bell!

    50 Shades of Blue AKA HellCamino

    This bike is so beastly it'll make children and hippies cry! Everything about it is just actually looks like it was built by a pro shop sorta like a Gas Monkey Garage for bikes.

    50 Shades of Blue AKA HellCamino

    This just gets better and looks like both a Harley Fat Boy and then also a police motorcycle from the 40's/50's.:rockout: And your fender brace shortening technique just solved a problem I had earlier today in fitting 50's era ballooner fenders to my Raleigh mountain bike.:113:

    Rusty chain restoration

    I'm coming down the home stretch on finally getting my '39 Rollfast that I purchased from a member here 3 years ago up and running....I'm using PB Blaster on the chain which hasn't spun in decades....its working like a charm.

    I was thinking the same thing....wouldn't want to see it in my rearview mirror! Fantastic build....everything about it is spot on and just right.
