Re: 1981 Quicksilver Helium

Thanks! big_smile That's right, Schrader valves silver welded into the top tube and the down tube to inject Helium gas. This was increase rigidity and avoid flex in the tubing.

Re: 1981 Quicksilver Helium

No Helium in there at the moment Dirty...
There was a little bit of pressure from the WD40 used to line the tubes to prevent further rust after the rechrome though. big_smile
My camera is shot at the moment so hopefully the valves are more visible with this.

Wicked job Sam! Amazing bike. Nothing quite like doing that childhood re-build either especially when it's a rare one. smile Congrats!
