So I found this bike in a trash pile:
It's a Rollfast Skoot, circa 1971. It has a leopard print banana seat in good condition, the frame is great, but the mudguards, handlebars, rims, etc are rusty as hell and it needs the chain, tires, tubes, etc replaced and a major greasing.
I started getting after it with some steel wool and most of the rust is coming off the mudguards just fine, but it's taking FOREVER! I can do that if I have to, but does anyone know of a quicker way to get rid of rust? Also, does anyone know of a good online source for bike parts? Oh, and ideas for glam-ing up the bike are welcome as well
