I think the dirt preserved It. I even got the original Horn Mechanism working. This thing is Soooo Original, It still has Its Original Tires, although dry rotted, I put new tubes in and now they still exist. NOW: This bike is not perfect but original and honest.
The chrome fenders shine bright but they do have some pitting. The dual chrome package racks also have pitting but shine nice, work properly and are original. Even the little reflectors on the rear rack are intact. The rear fender reflector is also still present and in great shape.
It still has the Original seat and hand grips. Yes the Orange/Gold paint has some wear but just some light wear here and there, all chrome has some degree of pitting but all shines nice, no major dents in any of the tins just some tiny pings here and there. The chain guard has none.The wheels have the most pitting but still shine nicely. The handlebars have slight road rash but nothing terrible. It even has the original decals on the on the frame seat tube. I don't believe there is a single part on this bike that is not original. This bicycle rides Excellent even on the old tires. I just want to be specific on the imperfections that would be expected for a Bike this old and It is much better than should be expected.
