Hi Roy, Thanks for info on the light. Have seen some pics of restored bikes with chromed tail light body, in my opinion it should be black enamel. Do you happen to know what it was back in the days?
As for touch up, well yes touch ups are part of these bikes history but if its done by someone who is not very skilled with brush there will be a mess. In some places i can see the paint has had some sort of chem. reaction with old enamel and its all like tiny bubbles etc
(. Unfortunately Out at a job right now but will get home by the end of next week and will try to remove touch up paint in some areas at first. Dont think it will come out very nice but its a start.
Vincent, Thanks for warning, I think worst things have been tried on a moving bike than checking tail light with your foot... like trying to show off and taking both hands off the bar when steering damper is made tight... and then hitting tight turn... Not recommended either
LEDs would be one option to make light brighter and nowadays they can be fitted into anything.
Have same question as Roy about your bike storage, must have been one of those airtight sheds...
