    This came my way via trade over a year ago. It sat patiently waiting it's turn and be semi-cannibalized for other projects. It was completely torn down and thoroughly cleaned and re-greased be for reassembly but the natural patina/crustiness it's acquired over it's lifetime was left alone.

    Here's a rundown of the specifics..........................

    '66 Huffy Cheater Slick
    Schwinn S-2 rear wheel
    NOS Cheng Shin Gumball Slick
    Murray front wheel
    Carlisle Zephyr Flyte front tire
    Schwinn pedals
    46" sissy bar
    Troxel Solo Polo springer

    Sweet rusteration!
    I love how many muscle bikes have some evidence of a big ole STP sticker somewhere. That is just what we all did back in the day.
    Great rear end pic too.

    Muchas gracias.
    HAHA, I forgot to mention why the guard has that spot.............I guess it's obvious. If you look closely at it you can still see the STP outline. The sticker was removed before I got the bike.
    Thanks! The photos of my entries were taken at a place near my house called Duncan Ceramics, the front of their building is a fantastic spot for photos. I've also taken quite a few shots of my car there.
