Many aeons ago, back when time was more youthful and I certainly was, the whole concept of undercoating with a brush and a tub of tarry undercoat was largely alien and, to be honest, with my decade or so old Minis, was never going to be a success. But I glooped it on, all over my welds, even though it was just going to rust through somewhere else. When I discovered it in aerosol form, I even sprayed it as racing stripes along the sides, just above the sills.I’ve never had undercoating done to a car, and I’ve heard both good and bad stories about what happens.
I think it all has to do with how clean the metal was when the coating was applied, however, It’s entirely likely that not everyone is using the same product. Maybe some of it was good and some of it was absolute garbage.
Anyway, more on undercoat as a layer of paint: https://www.inspirationspaint.com.au.
I love the barn find restoration. Especially the chopped fenders, black spokes and the satin black paint finish.
You can't miss with classic black and chrome. Love it.
Actually the main sprocket, fenders and spokes are actually a dark green, but it is hard to see in that photo...
Yes, Romet has made a lot of non-Romet marked bikes over the years, and I while I have seen quite a few export bikes marked as "Universal", and even own one, I have never seen a Tyler outside of a few adverts.I have seen several bikes in the US badged as "TYLER" that were marked Made in Poland. I actually saw a Tyler frame in a salvage yard yesterday but didn't think to get a picture.
It is my hope that one day one will come my way...
