    I think that project deserves an before and after picture, just to see the rusted old bike and then we can appreciate all the work you did on it, but it looks good, I like that green,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Well there are a couple of before pictures. My cat walked across the keyboard while I was putting them together and now I can't seem to get rid of the attached pictures.

    OOOOOOOOOO!! Pretty bright green!!!
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    Yes I painted it with 5 coats of aerosol paint then three coats of clearcoat . No it is not metallic. What a job that was but my wife likes it so it was well worth it.

    It reminds me of this old John Deere bike that pops up on CL sometimes.
    The speed is break neck, faster than a high speed dual cassette tape deck.

    We are moving to North Carolina and don't have the room to take this bike so my wife wants to sell it. Any idea what I can get for it. I contacted Huffy and they said it was a 1968 Cruiser.
