This was a fun project. Lots of chrome polishing and cleaning. The real fun was re-routing the generator wires internally for a much cleaner look. We also took pleasure in re-tapping the French threaded crank, transforming it into a modern 9/16 thread to increase the options for replacement pedals. No new paint or chrome, but it still turned out pretty good and has a nice well-loved patina.
