    AAAH, OK, well, it's a really cool old retro cruiser.

    The light would be great, if it worked. The batteries had pretty much eaten everything inside, so I just put it back together and painted it. I tried to make it work, but most everything was eaten by the battery acid and high Iowa humidity. It does make the bike look good though. I also like the design of the rear rack. You could probably put 100 pounds on it and it would still be straight.

    It also has a horn in the red center section, but it was also pretty much destroyed by the batteries and high Iowa humidity. If you look at the middle of that section you will see the button and it is painted red also, as from what I can tell that is what it was originally. There are also fins in the front of those pieces. They were really damaged, but I straightened them up as best I could quickly.
