This bike will be a test of my ability. Take a good look at this Zep. Everyone I have spoken and shown this bike to tells me its a piece of trash. I guess I kind of look at it like that bird with the busted wing… will it fly?
Started messing around with the old Zep the other day and up and beyond all the rust the thing I couldn’t get off my mind was those buddies of mine calling my bike a piece of junk . So no matter what I`m out to prove them wrong and I’m going to photograph and post step by step just how to bring this old Zep back to life.
It may take awhile ?
Put a few more hours in the Zep this week concentrating on straightening the fenders and supports .
Digging through a box of old parts I came up with the tail light I’m going to use , and the red glass reflector on the back of the rack . The rack is more for the photo the original was so bent up I`m having it professionally straightened which will be in the next set of photos . And that handlebar light doesn’t go on the bike I thought it was cool looking so I pretty much through it in for looks .
Couple more weeks I`ll tear it apart have the frame , fenders and guard blasted and ready for paint.
