Keep a diary of your latest build here.
Picked this bike up in early Summer. It's a 1962 Columbia Firebolt Finally today, my Dad says he wants me to clean it for next Summer Okay, I'll do it So my plans are to try and give it a Steve clean (make it look like brand new ) These are some old pics Progress pics tomorrow By the way each wheel is bent and looks like someone did a bunny hop on them

Got pics because I had to take a pic of something else for a member Polished the chainguard real good and it looks nice
Cool bike! Can't wait to see it cleaned up. Heres a shot of mine and it still looks just like the photo. It's on my list of things to do
Finding the project is what makes me happy...finishing it isn't something I usually think about!
I wish I had a tank Cool bike too
I polished it real good and it looks really nice I'll get outside pics next weekend when I have the wheels and tires
Very shiny...at least in person
Lost a bolt for the chainguard The aluminum on the fender struts came out nice All I need are wheels and tires

He'll be telling everyone: " Look what my son did for me!".....That's what life is all about, doing "stuff" for other people. COOL bike!
MY INTRO/BIKES ... WHEEL WE EVER BE SATISFIED?
Thank's fellas Larry, my Dad probably would say that to everyone I hope I get some business to restore
Anyone have 26 inch wheels, 20 teeth on rear hub, coaster brake
The bike is all done Thanks to KOTA for the awesome tires I had to take the front fender off because it was rubbing, but it gives it that "hot rod" look I might have to get some wider bars form my Dad because he really doesn't fit on it
The bike with me:the builder
