    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
    20190601_123716.jpg
    and this big chrome sprocket and crank
    20190613_184329.jpg
    (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

    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.

    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.

    201B93B0-A825-4C35-A05A-8D97ABDEF71B.jpeg 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 :39:
