Here is my first project. I kept all original with the exception of stem tube shifter instead of downtube.

The paint on the $30 bike was in very bad shape so it was painted and given a clear coat. It's a pleasure to ride and shifts smooth

The dog is named Tex. My wife and I take him in a backpack when we ride, he thinks he's a tough guy.
