Just picked this up earlier today, bought from a local guy through CL. My first "vintage" bike, all the other ones I have are for a specific purpose (road, mountain, touring/townie, 24" BMX, etc.). Was looking for a project bike to rehab, so we'll see how it goes.
I've been looking through the pictures of other people's rides, and they are so nice! Really well put together, rehabbed/restored, etc. Looking to make this one interesting and pleasing to the eye, with less emphasis on making it period-correct. If anyone has an idea what year it is, I'd love to know. Also, anyone know where I can get a new headlight? The one I have is cracked, can be repaired (in theory), but I like the look of another one I saw on a similar bike (on this site) which is chrome.
Much to my wife's chagrin, if this one goes well (and I think that it will), there will be more in the future.
The last picture (the one of me grinding) was me getting the last fender bolt off. WD-40 and penetrating oil made it move a little, but couldn't get it completely off, so I had to use my Dremel with a cut-off wheel.
