My major project today was to address the rust on my 'new' bike. Here's how it went...just me, some rubber gloves, steel wool, and good old fashioned elbow grease...
tire rims, before...
The pedal 'arms' (or whatever they're called?) were pretty bad.
Before after Not much difference, but some. I'm looking into another way to clean that up. Anybody have any suggestions?
I don't know what this part is called either, but it's where the chain goes.
The handlebars were bad, too, but i managed to get them more cleaned up than i expected!
I think it looks a THOUSAND times better, and that's just from removing some rust! Next, I'm trying to figure out how to fix the rust on the body without damaging the paint too much more than it is. Then, some new paint, new basket, and maybe a bell and some handlebar tassels?
Coming up this Sunday...a long overdue 'cheese tasting day with Hubby'!! I'll be trying some new stuff, but I've also been longing for my new favs from last time!
