It is always fun to bring memories to life.
This rusty little Pilot was a really fun restoration project! The bicycle's owner chose to have the bike painted and some of the more character-building pieces chromed. The finished product shows it all and her childhood bike is ready to go!
Some old bikes just want to be resurrected from their state of rusty disrepair. They yearn to be born again as fresh, near-new machines waiting to hit the road... this bike was not one of those bikes.
This was a fun project. Lots of chrome polishing and cleaning. The real fun was re-routing the generator wires internally for a much cleaner look.
This was a fun project. The old Schwinn American Deluxe was rustier than an old grill. Our orders were to restore it without doing any re-chroming or paint work. We were quite pleased with the results.
