Restomod 95 GT PFT

Had some workshop time last night to get the frame stripped down. Next step will be to get the bottom bracket cups and headset out. Might take it to a local shop. After everything is off, the rust will be addressed. It was cool to see all the little quirks of my childhood bike. I particularity liked the brake setup and use of spoke nipples in the gyro and front brake.

Re: Restomod 95 GT PFT

For the rust definitely look into cleaning it chemically, most if not all of that rust should come off with an OA bath
