    Great find, chico81! A Sekai 4000 is a really nice bike. Not a bike I would have expected to see sporting a rack and a kickstand!

    Checking back in ... I did it! Thanks for the advice.

    The fact that it took me two months, should give you an idea of the pace at which I work. Actually I did a fair bit of other wrenching first,...

    Hello - glad to return to BF! I've been kind of checked out for a while, since I had no bike projects going.

    I used TUFO sealant but I've switched to Stan's NoTubes sealant. Same results as far as I can tell, dramatically less expensive.

    +1 this is great info. I was neutrailizing with baking soda, rinsing with cool water, and air drying. Flash rust.
