    Hello! :D

    I'm new to the site although I've lurked a bit from time to time. I've scored three old muscle bikes and I'm hoping to get educated! I've got a Ross Polobike, a Murray High Jinks and a sweet little Royce Union. I know they're not the upper crust, but I love their looks and I've already been tooling around on the Ross. I just need to start cleaning them up! I'll post pics as soon as I get them up online! Nice to meet everybody!

    I also got these lights. Anybody know how they mount or any info on them? Not even sure if the big light is a bike light. No legible identifying marks.

    Welcome!
    Thats a nice start to what will likely become an overwhelming addiction.
    I could be wrong on the lights but they look like boat lights.

    Thank you!!

    Well that's all I need. One more addiction with wheels. :lol:

    I found the bullet light - Delta Rocket light. Seen mounted as headlight, taillight, fender light and even mounted as duals. But like you said, the larger one may still be a headlight or fog light for a boat or some other vehicle. BUT..if I can find a good battery casing, it will become a handlebar mounted amber headlight. Be kinda sweet on the gold Ross. 8)

    Got any tips for removing surface rust without removing or damaging the original paint any more? I wondered about light scrubbing with steel wool. :?:

    Hiya everybody! :mrgreen:

    I'm in Greer, South Carolina. Glad to be in the crusty area. I like my vehicles still showing their personality. :D

    WD-40, huh? I'm gonna do that! Man, if I'd bought stock in that company some years back....

    I'll be cleaning them up and reposting pics. Hubby is currently trying to talk me out of the Ross. Nope. :wink:

    Here are some updated pics. I added a crusty headlight to my crusty Ross. I have another shiny, near mint Royce headlight for my Lil Chik, but I've been unable to find a bracket.

    My Ross (pre-headlight) and my Lil Chik.

    This is my Royce Union. I'm thinking blue/silver striped glitter banana seat?

    [​IMG]



    Any my Murray High Jinks. I swear I rarely ever see these. I'm thinking solid red tires. And red pedals.
