Motobecáne MX 31 & Globus Super folding bike. The luminous orange couple!

Since some years I have a super rare Motobecáne MX 31 in the barn.
The Stormy Archer three speed shift needs a little rebuild and new bearings.
The frame was broken and not that good repair welded.

Some days ago my Dad found another orange Bicycle.
 An old Globus Super folding bike from the 70´s in nice condition.

And here is the couple together

Maybe I rebuild them both in the winter a little for some cruisin with my girl next summer.

On Any Sunday

If you don´t know the movie yet, go and watch it!
One of Bruce Browns masterpieces.

See Mc´Queen, Malcom Smith and Mert Lawwill do what they do best.

Yesterday I watched On Any Sunday II.
Not that good like the first one, but still a must see!

71 Honda CB 450

Underground Bobbers

A dozen small steps

Step 1
Strip as much as possible paint with thinner down.
Less work for the Sandblaster, less money to pay and less heat on the Iron during the blasting!

Step 2

Step 3
Welding the holes and smoothening the dents

Poorly took not realy good pics from the welded body.

Step 4

Again Sandblasting and then it get´s primed.
Should be finished in 14 days, then it wents strictly to the painter.
