With a bit of help from a friend, well a lot of help from a friend (I really just stood and watched), all the broken parts were removed and I had an empty frame to paint.
I toiled long and hard to get the original red paint off and after a few woosie afternoons of breathing in paint stripper I had a plain metal frame that I wanted to make yellow.

(or garage covered with old sheets and full of spiders)

Then the same hard working friend who did all the work taking the bike to pieces, put it all back together again.
And I became the owner of this magnificent bike!
|In all its shiny yellow and black glory. did you notice the matching shoes?|
