I finally finished my first bike restoration and had SO much fun! The bike is about 70 years old and I got it on craigslist but it was UGLY when I brought it home and needed some work.

It's got a subtle theme some may like, some may hate and maybe some may like in an ironic kind of way... let me know what you think!




All the white parts are super sparkly (just like you-know-who)



Do I Dazzle You? (this makes me chuckle like a fool!)



I may order a mini-license plate for the back...Washington of course! I wouldn't want to cover up those cool seat springs though, hmmm...





Aren't those hand grips kind of perfect?

This is how it looked when I picked it up, I loved the skirt guards but that color is horrible!
