  1. That is awesome I would like to see some full pictures of it completely finished. I like the way you put it in comic book form; I haven’t seen a blog do it like this, it grabs my attention.

  2. Hey, thanks for the positive feedback! I still need to refurbish the front wheel hub, remove the rust from the front rim and a few other places, and get that gum wall tire I wrote about. Hope to have all that done in the near future. In the meantime, if you’re interested, I have some actual photos of the bike on my Flickr account. Here’s the link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/killyourcar/ On the right, look for a set labeled “Bikes.”

    Geoff, A touching tribute to you Dad. He would totally approve of your first class ingenuity in restoring his bike. Know he will “ride” with you where ever you may go!
