    You are welcome, there are some threads about removing paint, it would be cool to see what is under that spray bomb blue!

    At this point, it really doesn't make much difference. You could collect the needed parts and build it either way. No one would be the wiser. Both rank right up there as some of the coolest bikes of the 50's!

    I believe that some Colorflows had the light mount bracket too.

    Great Bike! Could be a Jetflow or Colorflow! But, very good bones to build on.

    Nice work, looks great! I am going to be restoring a FleetWing soon that is very similar to your bike. I am taking notes.

    I think everyone gave up after TRM posted the Decoluxe, but I'll throw my barhop build on here anyway!

    Elgin stripper! aka Be-bop-a-Lula....she's my baby!

    Since I made some room selling off a couple of bikes and some parts, I was able to drag this Elgin curved seat tube frame down out of the rafters. And, along with some spare parts and some former build off parts, I threw this little barhop rat together. I had this set of jr. Mark 5 handlebars...

    Star chain ring and mirror are sold. It looks like the spaceship horn and my custom painted chain guard are all that is left to sell on this one.
