The sticker says it all. This bike has been around the block a few times and it was showing its age. The original paint is still there and it’s in pretty good shape. Since it’s only original once, we set put in some work trying to save it.
Elbow grease and some steel wool can remove surface rust. In the photo above you can see the before and after of this effort.
And after the work is complete, the entire leg shield is looking great and it’s ready to be remounted on the frame.
The floorboards had to be repainted. They’re also ready to be installed on the bike now.
