Wheels DONE! Not going to lie I didn’t think the front hub would clean up that nice!! Love how the 12g spokes look on both hubs and the vintage tires just make the wheel set look mean. Now I just need to get the bike built 😳😂

Originally I wanted to strip this frame and paint the lugs and clear the whole frame. But time and weather aren’t going to let that happen. The black is in pretty good shape. Just wanted to get the decals off, a little blow dryer and time I was able to pull them right off one even came off in one piece. I do really like the black against the shiny chrome. Big thanks to my friend Christopher for the freewheel! Again loving all the shiny parts
