    I'm thinking I'll do clear coat over lightly sanded rust on the frame...

    Does anyone have any old photos of these or some propaganda from the time?

    Thanks!

    Serial number (4) over (68316) for posterity.

    Great patina. Keep the rear fender. Rust never sleeps.

    Wow! Blast from the past! This was one of the first old bikes I pursued based on an online sale listing. Much of the reason I do this is for the thrill of the hunt, I drove all the way to Kentucky to get this.

    It arrived in Savannah today. Most of it at least (frame, guard, seat, crank, badge).
