1957 Western Cosmic Flyer
Hello! So this is my first post. I'm betting I'm posting in the wrong spot like a newb but please forgive me!
I live in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia Canada and I recently bought a *what I'm guessing* is a late 1950's Western Cosmic Flyer. The thing is pretty cool, has headlights and lots of old chrome! However she's been better days. The original paint is a nice aqua marine but it's in pretty rough shape. I would like to repaint it green, yet redo all the original striping and logos/decals *some are ok, some are faded and others are completely gone*. I have two questions. A) being what are your opinions on changing an original paint job and B) is there any possible way to fix peeling chrome (like chrome spray paint) or should I just bite the bullet and get it redone? The value of the bike doesn't concern me because I plan on keeping it for as long as I can. Thanks for any info or ideas! Cheers
