The "Nickle" is Back!

American Brightworks did a great job on all the nickle plating, including the 1950 triumph oil bag. Decal is an old Dean Jeffries waterslide but didn't slide on as well as I would have liked it to.

The Taco Bell kid is on one side...

...and the Jeffries Cycle Maniac is on the other side which will be mostly obscured from sight.

Springs, brackets, and other miscellaneous parts nickled to perfection!

how'd the friction dampener make out? do you have to have it re-shoed?

The shoes are still there but they've worn down a bit so bolt may need to be shortened. The reshoeing may still be necessary or I'm not sure if shim pads could be added.
