Default Diane's Bike

Hi all, I bought this little "Roadmaster?" from the back room of a local bike shop, getting only the frame and fork (in primer) cranks and sprocket. I returned and found the rear fender.

I then embarked on an illegitimate restoration, finding a color I really liked, that was similar to some I knew from that time period (1946-1953). I think I bought 3 rattle cans of the green, and one white.

Scuff the primer, paint green, let dry, and lay out the blazes with masking tape, shoot the white, and Ohh boy time to re-assemble.

Better results tho, will always be achieved with better quality materials, in the years since I built this bike, the paint has oxidized and gone "frosty".

You CAN do a very nice job at home with rattle cans.
