Those parts look great!
I bought three old bikes to steal parts off of for the front fork, araya rims, high flange front hub, this nexus 8
and this big chrome sprocket and crank
(and the Chicago tag for my non-vintage TT Schwinn build)
But you got me second guessing myself.
That chrome fork, and those blue wheels and sprocket look fantasic on that old classic!
We have done a few bare steel rat rod cars. Sounds crazy but wiping tranny fluid on the bare metal a few times a year gives it a great sheen and beads water like rainex. Just a suggestion
I'll have to try that, thank you
Gloss sprayed on with an air gun will shine forever and really protect it. We all get hung up on rattle cans, I do it too. But my painter friend has a bare metal Monark he cleared a couple years ago and it looks like day one. The shine of the clear is also deeper than anything I could do with a spraycan.

Pedals are on
This color combo is getting me hooked
More blue parts showed up
Will you have it built by the 4th?
Loving all the shiny new parts!
Yeah, all parts have been ordered.
Lookin good man!
I did a bare frame very similar to this. Bout once a year I wipe the frame with Pledge wood cleaner and it seems to keep it lookin good.
Chain is on. I’ve gone through and have broke a lot of chain breakers but this one works great!
It's cool, but only if you use it for home purpose. Been through a lot of breakers, and the ones made by Shimano work best for me.
Are you planning on using a blu seat
True. Or buy 2k clear. It's a picture aerosol can but actual automotive clear. Wear a resp for sure !
