Two years ago I went to my local recycling center, and on my way out this red bicycle was in the bed of a truck. I asked the owner about it, and moments later he lifted it up and handed to me.

In the time since, all I have learned it that it is a Ross Deluxe 1950's. That's it! I've been chasing a parked car (getting no where fast) ever since . Any help would be great!

Tires are dry-rotted, and the rear axle (sprocket I guess) is bad (I think). Sorry, this is my first restoration.

Could use guidance on painting too. Do I get sand blasted then painted,or powder-coated?

    From the photos it looks nice,,too nice to do anything but clean it up, and have the rear hub rebuilt. Buy some good tires from a Bicycle shop. Tubes too. Then ride it. Nice find.

    Don't paint it,that bike will clean up nice with some WD40 and some elbow grease,I'll bet the paint willeven polish up pretty nice!!

    Thanks for the great advice!
    It does have a small amount of rust, on left side where the rear tire is mounted.

    Never saw using WD-40 to clean up paint job. Wow, thanks!

    You mentioned about rebuilding the rear hub. Where do I find someone, and is it pricey? Thanks!
