    1940s Hawthorne Middleweight Project

    This is just going to be a quick and dirty for now, removing some of the tractor paint to reveal the original for a nice patina. Will probably put some boiled linseed oil on to bring the original paint back to life. Got the wheels mosly done, removed rust, fixed pinholes and stripped nasty yellow paint. Still need to rebuild the hubs. Working on the fenders and frame now.

    Got after the rear coaster brake hub last night and it is now clean and happy with new grease. What a mess!

    Finished it up for now. Will be some new pars and upgrades down the road but I have a cruiser to do for my wife, industrial trike for me, a diy extracycle to get done, and maintenance on my mountain bikes lol and can't forget the recycled pay it forward bikes I do. So maybe before next spring. Threw one in of my daughter with it. She loves that bell and helped name the bike Ol' Grampa
