Almost ready to go!
I took a bike into the shop and I got back a box of parts:
I still had to remove some clips and the stickers, but not the paint transfer decals. I don’t know what those 1970’s aftermarket metallic stickers where made of, but they did NOT want to come off. C helped a lot. We spent 45 minutes picking them off one tiny fleck of tin sticker at a time. Thanks to Cycler over at Biking in Heels, I was able to get the head badge off with out wrecking it. Maybe I’ll turn it into a pin or something.
Unnamed is almost already to go. Almost. The last hold out problem is this:
The first one came out with a lot of effort and some cursing, but I can NOT get the other one out. No matter how much cursing I do. Normally, I would let T try, but he has caught a nasty bug and is confined to bed for the foreseeable future. And if he isn’t miraculously better tomorrow morning, I am going to have to cancel another diner invite.
I swear we are cursed. Whenever I invite someone for diner, we get sick.
As my friend B would say, “Craptastic!”
Parts that I removed:
Bullet tip from front fender
Rear fender clamp
and TWO timble cups! Yay!
