This will be a nice little project and I will post updates on my progress. Here's a couple of pictures of what I have done so far.
|Freewheeling crankset actually uses a freewheel inside the crankset rather than on the rear wheel of the bike.|
|24 inch tires were common with youth's lightweight bikes of the 70's and 80's|
|Shimano Positron shifting came with a solid shifting cable and an indexed rear derailleur.|
|Repacking: Crankset and bearings are removed and ready to be degreased|
|Crankset and hardware before degreasing|
|Degreasing using Simple Green solution, an all natural degreaser that is free of harmful chemicals|
|I use chrome polish on all chrome parts to clean out the grime and surface rust on the bike.|
