Holla. My bike's done! I finished a while ago... I'm just finally putting up photos. Thanks to the help of the Provo Bicycle Collective, I was able to repack the front hub. It's pretty pitted, we tightened it until it rode on the brakes a tad, and there's still a lot of play. I will have to get it replaced eventually.
I replaced some of the cable housing that had rotted to the cable and shortened the cable a little to tighten things up.
I put on slick tires to make it better for road riding. I replaced the saddle and put on Orly handle bar grips from Mad Dog Cycles in Provo. They don't get sticky as you use them, which is nice. I used Krylon spray paint in Bright Idea. Krylon is good for projects like this because they have paint specifically designed for plastics and such.
I removed the rack, (I might put it back on, I can't decide.) And bought a blue matching helmet. Cuz that is public health. Ready to hit the road.
