    As of right now all I have for this build is a set of grey 26" tires. They were my inspiration to start this build. I have a few parts bikes lined up and a bunch of parts on the way. The frame is gonna be a postwar JC Higgins Jetflow.

    Welcome to RRB and BO13
    Can't go wrong if you starting point is a classic Jetflow frame.
    How big are the gray tires?

    Picked up a parts bike yesterday. Pretty much just wanted the rear rack. Not sure if it will just get painted or maybe have the chrome redone.

    It's not as nice as it looks in the pic. All the chrome has silver paint on it , the hubs are loose, and the head tube has a small crack.

    A little CLR soak for my Ross crank , gear, and bb. These came off my other parts bike. Rusty but the CLR should take care of it. The back of the gear is already looking good.

    That rack will look super cool with that frame, I dig that snowflake chainring as well. Nice parts!

    Wow that came out nice! Never seen the CLR bath on here before. Is that the Calcium/Lime/Rust rover stuff? You dilute it at all?

    Yes. It's a 1 to 1 mix of CLR and water. Works great to remove surface rust and doesn't hurt the chrome. My brother and I have used it a lot on chrome parts.
