Well... here it is, the bike that started it all. I purchased this bike off of Ebay in December of 2008. It was pretty rough, but not beyond hope. This is a shot of it the day we brought it home (blue background) and another shot of it after my son and I spent an afternoon cleaning it up and lubing it. Still a lot of work to do, but it's looking a lot better already! If you'd like to read the story about the build up of the bike, here's the link. 1966 Mattel Bike ProjectThe Day We Brought it Home.After We Cleaned it Up.
