Sheffield Done, Hercules to Parts!

Well, started to work on the Hercules. Got it together, but the SA hub would not free wheel.  In frustration, I stripped down the Hercules and finished the Free Spirit Sheffield.  Looks pretty good and rides well.  Guess I will part out the Hercules.

Hercules, the task continues

Well, back from California and got the tires I ordered.  Decided to put them on the Hercules and focus more on completing this project.  Tightened up some loose spokes, but still need to true the wheels.  I found a NOS AMF odometer and placed it on the right front fork.  The fenders stays are not original (I think), so had too do some modification to the rear fender stays.  Now need to get some cables for the brakes and shifter, and a new SA shifter and some brake pads.  That should complete this project.

AMF Nimble

Well, been away in California for work for a few weeks, am home for a few days.  Ordered new tires, tubes and rim strips for the Sheffield from Bike Tires Direct.  In the mean time, I found this AMF Nimble step thru frame.  Was in pretty good shape and cleaned up nicely.  Wish I never sold my men's Nimble.  Oh well. Will take better pictures when weather is better.  Tires for the Sheffield should be back on my return from California so I can finish it up.  Need to then focus on the Hercules and finish that up.
