OK I think I'm crazy for messing with this bike. I bought the bike back in 84 for my wife who rode it a couple of times and never touched it again. It's been hanging from the garage ceiling since. It's totally original with the nubs still on the tires. I started by thinking I'd just air the tires up and try to wash off about 25 years worth of crud. Well one thing led to another and I'm kind of getting carried away with the plan. I'm currently polishing all the aluminum and just started on the wheels tonight. Last night I replaced the original bar tape, which pretty much disinigrated when I removed it.
Pictures to come when done. So far it looks pretty good. It still won't be worth anything when finished, but I just want to see how nice I can make it. When my son comes over we can ride together as this bike fits him well.
