No sence in blowing up the Fresh Finds forum with my updates, so ill post my progress here. I got this bike last weekend from a very cool guy that lives in my area. I got alot of help figuring out what model, year, What parts were OG, and not OG from some guys here. Special thanks to B607, UdallCustomBikes, Ohdeebee, for helping me. You guys are awesome! The Original color is red I believe, based on the paint inside the head tube, and bottom bracket. I also belive that it had some kind of creme color that goes from the head tube, back. But on the fork, there is what looks to be original blue paint on the steer tube. Then it someone painted the rest of the frame blue to match the fork. Then someone painted the whole thing black. Then nature took its course and now its mostly surface rust. Wheels need total rebuilding, and all the spokes need to be replaced. Chain guard is Wald Aftermarket one. It has a clamp on kick stand, and not the other kind. The rear hub is a New Departure Model D The front hub says "New Departure-W" I don't think the rims are OG, since I can't find any markings. Stem, seat, chain ring aren't OG.... Etc... chain tension-er screws are nice and loose a little bit of OG paint Clamp on kick stand This is the only markings on the seat. one of the caps are gone It also came with 2 tires and tubes- Cordovan(?) tube and tire Are these OK to throw away? or does anyone want them for some reason? If someone wants them, You can have them. The 2nd one is a Schwinn Typhoon Cord tire in better shape. No tears, rips etc., just cracking in some places. http://i475.photobucket.com/albums/rr113/ghopher0/photo3-10.jpg[/img [img]http://i475.photobucket.com/albums/rr113/ghopher0/photo4-9.jpg And one good Carlisle(?) tube. Started to take it apart and clean everything- This thing is pretty nasty BB Bearings- Before and after The seat say supports, and chain stay supports are a bit messed up Is that normal? Seat stay Chain stay That's all for now. Stay tuned for more!
