The chromed steel wheels look to be in excellent condition, though apparently these type of wheels are not good for braking, especially in the rain. This is a pity as I do like the look of chrome wheels on vintage bikes, there is something about chrome ….
And a slightly out of focus shot of the headbadge, in great condition, and also showing the state of the rust in the frame. The patterns in the lug work are interesting with their geometric details. We think this bike is from the mid 70s. The really fun part will be deciding what type of colour scheme and detailing to do to it, that is still being decided, with lots of ideas being tossed around at the moment. Cream with brass trims perhaps?
