I put the Wayfarer flyer up on the stand today, and checked it over more thoroughly. I didn’t find any cracks or dents in the frame and only slight evidence of rough factory welding around the dropouts.
The headset is total junk from what I can tell by just wiggling it. I didn’t put any wrenches on this bike yet because the contest hasn’t started.
The chrome is not in perfect shape, but the cotter key crankset appears to be undisturbed and solid. It has correct period pedals on it, but one of the bottle caps is missing. Of course the fenders are missing and the seat’s not original, but otherwise it’s all there.
It’s definitely gonna need some new tires.
