Actually, it's a 1968...

Front wheel time. This thing was just so crapped up, it had to be redone!!
Oh, I better mention again, I"M A CHEAP ASS!!! I'm reusing as much stuff as I can.

The spokes and nipples had 42 years of crap on them...

Since I finally found a 19" shouldered Akront and was the high bidder on Ebay, I had to clean everything up to be as shiney as this beauty!!

My way of saving $35 bucks + shipping "IF" I won the auction on Ebay for the NOS set of front spokes... Ah hell, it only took 2 hours!

So the nipples are in the tumbler and should be clean by morning.
Tomorrow is wheel building day!
