    Old saying amoungst classic car guys, "they are only original once."

    Clean'em up and sell'em. My $0.02.
    Nice find, most everything here at swapmeets is well picked over by vendors...before the gates open.
    I need to go to the next M/C swapmeet at Veteran's Stadium anywho. If I find a bike and buy it...I'll blame it on loco. :razz:

    Hi I prefer the Roadmaster and other Cleveland brands. BUT I can tell you this from my experiance with origional cars, motorcycles and bikes, someone's said it before me, they are only orig once, and let me add, that a bottle of polish is one heck of a lot cheaper than paint, clean them, do not ruin them, any old junk bike can be restored, only clean and orig one time,

    I buy and sell old bikes all the time and agree with everyone else.You would be better off just polishing them up and repacking the bearing before you sell them.
