Got the frame and some other parts from Dos yesterday.
Took the butt ugly frame, tore it all down and prepped it to be wire wheeled.
Today I wire wheeled about 90% of the bike. There are parts I won’t bother with that you can’t see.
The plan is to keep it bare metal. As a blacksmith I use a ton of Boiled Linseed Oil to seal my raw steel. That’s the plan for this frame, one coat is already on.
The tank is a pretty nice Cranberry Hercules tank. I’m sorting that out with some evaporust. Hopefully I can flush that out tomorrow after a two day soak. (edited)
