Bike Update: Part III

Saturday, October 29, 2011

In case you didn't hear, we are restoring an old bike. See original post here and the first update here. I made a goal to publish a post about it each week in order to motivate us. Well....that has not exactly happened, but we are close! While this was begun as a fun couples project that we could bond over, it has turned into a fun project for Nate. Yep, I have not helped as much as I should! Although,  I have gotten down and dirty and helped sand down the gears etc. So our couple-bonding hope may not be completely lost!

Here is what we have completed since the last update:
1. Finished sanding
2. Painted, including a clear proctectant coat.
3. Purchased the bike seat, handlebar tape and brake cables.

Gotta love vintage products...from back when metal was quality!

Our goal for the next few days:
1. Assemble!
and purchase the:
2. Rims
3. Tires
4. Inner tubes
5. Pedals

If you have questions about what products we have used so far, let me know!
