    For some strange reason the pictures don’t show on my I-pad. They do show on my desktop machine.

    Now they don't even show on my desktop...so I reloaded them. Strange!

    And I've got the spokes and nipples all painted so that I can lace the hubs to the rims.... realizing of course that checking sheet metal fit without wheels is not the best thing to do!

    Don’t look back with buyer’s remorse (I can say that...it was your checkbook!). Your pictures are small but it looks good, and the provenance sounds pretty neat!

    Agree with Tom, maybe some value added on the first one with rear shocks, foot boards, seat pan, brake pedal and rods, and more.

    Okay, I'm in Bob.... my speedo came in pieces in a coffee can reading 6579 and I had Terry re-set it to zero. Turned over 30,000 last fall... I better get kicking if I'm going to catch you and Dave!

    That would be a good question to ask someone who actually has done that. Sidehacker says he doesn't want to chrome it, he's just looking for advice on the best way to paint with a hinge.
