    I found this last summer sitting behind a gas station and talked the old man out of it. I've decided to tear it down now and rebuild it for my girlfriend (Stacy)..
    Plans are simple. It will be a light green with white tires and some gray/silver parts. It'll have a front basket and fenders. It'll have to just evolve as it goes...

    Re: Stacy's Savage

    First thing i did was tear apart the wheels. Im going to use the prewar black new departure hubs. However, I'd like to use NON-skiptooth chain and sprockets. My question is: Did they make regular tooth rear sprockets for these hubs?

    This is the sprocket I want to use. Stacy has a tattoo of stars on her foot, so I think its fitting :D

    Parts are stacking up!! :D Just picked up this bunch. I'm going to polish the neck and attempt to polish the bars as well (both are aluminum). Hopefully they'll come out nice.

    Re: Stacy's Savage

    That's a snap ring sprocket, your existing is threaded. I might have one, it may take a day or 2 to find, probably a 20t though.

    Re: Stacy's Savage

    That's great! Yea let me know if u find one. I didn't even consider the snap ring as opposed to the threaded hub. Good call. A 20t is fine for now until I can find a 24t. Thanks!!

    Re: Stacy's Savage

    Went down to Vintage Bike Supply today to have the forks straightened. He put his cool contraption on the frame that was a converted car jack. Pulled the forks into place no problem!!

    I also needed one double drop center rim...which he didn't have :( ... The bike had one DDC rim and one smooth rim as you can see in the pic. If anyone has one they wanna part with, please let me know. I'll also place a wanted ad for one:

    Re: Stacy's Savage

    Who likes VW colors? This bike is gonna be Mango Green like this bus. Im going this friday to sandblast everything and pick up a quart of Mango-licious paint. A matching double drop center rim is on its way too. The rims will be grey. I'm excited about this bike for Stacy!! I just need to get a solid day on it to make some progress! I told her I got a sprocket with stars on it.... She said "whats a sprocket?" haha I love it! :lol:

    Re: Stacy's Savage

    Spent some time on Stacy's bike this weekend at my buddy's shop.

    I should get some kind of award for having the crustiest frame on the planet!! I can count FOUR layers of paint, with the white layer being house paint. :roll:
    [​IMG]

    Some paint stripper and sand blasting cleaned this 70 year old frame up nicely.

    The original front fender was hackered and un-repairable. I found (randomly) a NOS front fender at a yard sale that was almost an exact match to the original :shock:. Perfect dent free. The original rear fender was repairable. A little metal finishing and filler and looks good as new.

    Got the Persons seat stripped apart, blasted and painted. Now just need to get a piece of white/grey leather and recover it.

    The aluminum Monark Sliver King bars I picked up were very ugly when they arrived. With some sanding and polishing, they're good as new. Here they are with one half polished.

    Heres what had to be done for the NOS front fender to fit. The edges needed pressed in a little on each side. The mounting point on the forks was off center too..

    Fenders sanded and ready for paint!!

    Heres what we did for the drop out screws. Since the originals have a thread pitch thats non existent anymore, and therefore a tap for that pitch is too. We rethreaded them with a 6mm pan head screws and cut the phillips head off and loc-tighted cap nuts on. Came out slick i think.

    Re: Stacy's Savage

    And finally PAINT!! The color is a little more yellow than I was wanting.... Oh well, it still has a vintage look to it. Its somewhere between a green and a yellow. One rim and seat pan/springs were painted grey but I didn't get pics of them..
