Vintage Four Wheeler

My daughter has a three month old baby boy. One of her friends found this in a thrift store and restored it for her. He dropped it off today. She says it was rusty and crusty when he bought it, but he did a magnificent job bringing it back to life.



My daughter tells me this guy is "just a friend," but it seems to me if he has deeper interests this is a pretty strong move to win over a single mom. He has at least impressed her dad.

The kid could do worse than starting off C&V.

Earliest example of C&V suspension I can think of.

Oh, and congrats!

Sure! Re-rake the handle. Internal wiring for headlight and taillight with a generator hub. Maybe add some fenders....

WOW. Congratulations, and best wishes to all and sundry, "Grandpa."

I'm sure I'll be waiting awhile until that particular sobriquet can be applied to me.
