    Wow! Two awesome rebuilds, great job on them both.
    I’m really digging the bare metal bike with the original fender tip paint

    Thanks Dr.Tankenstein I typically don’t do restorations but these bikes had too much potential to leave theme looking the way they were

    Very cool! Thanks for the extra pics. I actually like building girls bikes. They make great looking rides....especially with apes!

    Sweet work! I could have sworn that I remember seeing you build that ladies bike. I thought that I remembered the amazing lace paint. But I sure can't find the thread for it. Am I getting it mixed up with another build? Either way, killer paint, and cool builds!!!!

    Toro1978 The seat on the woman’s is a Pearson not sure model it is and not sure on the brand on the men’s it’s the original one I got with the bike and more less sandblasted the pans and hardware and powder coated it a gun metal flake and just re-wrap the top pan myself if that helps
