    West German, Executive. It was in pretty bad condition when I first got it. I put a free wheel on it and a lot of custom parts. The chain guard was off of a boys bike of the same brand and I had to make brackets out of brass strip to fit it to the frame. My mother-in-law made the sissy bar pad from a pattern I gave her. Newer 3 piece crank and chain ring added.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Almost finished refurbishing an early 70s Vista Duchess...Lovely bicycle.
    OK..so, I put parts in separate labeled baggies when I'm working on several bikes., (which is all the time), but somehow lost an axle nut..and now I'm waiting on delivery the LH side rear nut...I went thru every nut in my shed before I found out the Sturmey Archer AW uses an odd size nut. (duh!) :doh:
    Went to two local bike shops, and the guys, both nice young dudes with man buns, didn't know what the HeII I was talking about. This bike had 3 layers of housepaint and was a garden ornament. I was gonna enter in current build-off, because before/ after is quite a difference..maybe I still will..;)
