Running a little behind here. I'm throwing my recently acquired PAU OPER, retired, work-bike into the ring. Some of you guys look like y'all are almost done....with several page threads. Not too late to enter is it? Last night, while I finally had a chance to take it apart, I had a good brain-fart on how I wanted it to look. I want to keep the same feel and look of the bike, but not have it be just another rustoration. Gotta rod it up. As found at Helotes Bicycle, Helotes, Texas. I still need to investigate the history of this bike. I have strong leads. These will probably buff out...hahahaha. Not a whole lot can be reused here. Most all bearings were gone. I think I'm going to take advantage of this little girl for some of her goodies....'62 Western Flyer. I want to get the frame media blasted. I have a couple leads here in town. I just don't have time to strip it myself....plus I hate doing that. :mrgreen: We'll see how it cleans up. Now I'm off to pull a leaky radiator out of our Oldsmobuick.
