Before (bought at the Syracuse flee market):
I flipped the handlebar back up. That was too silly. All original, except the saddle and the grips, which come from a trashed bike in East Syracuse, and the handlebar stem and the crank, which are new. Hours of sanding, priming, painting, pinstriping. That's when I started being able to take a bike completely apart in less than 15 minutes for painting, but I'm bragging. The light comes from an old French bicycle.
