Hello I'm trying to clean up and get my mums old Dawes Newpin back and working. Its got a 3 speed Sturmey-Archer gears on it. Its all original except for new tyres and new breaks, breaks pads need chaning but tyres are good Not bad really, going by the hub and the information from Sheldon Browns website its a 1969 bike. Theres bits of grease on the bike thats really stubbon, but is slowly coming off. The chain is black, i keep cleaning it. Anyway of trying and get it back to a less dirty colour, or getting most of the gunk off it? The hub is slowly getting cleaned, but alot of the paint or coating has come off it. On the handlebars and seatpost(hope they havent seied up, not checked yet) there is rust on the top, anyway of getting it off. Theres also some on the top of the frame, which has gone through the paint. I thought about stripping the paint off and either spraying it myself, or sending it somewhere to be resprayed, but think it will be too much. The rims are rusted, the front one not too bad, but the back one is brown with rust. I have thought about taking the wheels off, and replacing them and putting a derailer on it instead of the original hub gears, but i'm going to try and keep the hub gears. Will i need to re-oil the hub inside because it hasnt been used for about 30+ years, and is old, or shall i just leave it. And the biggest question of all, should i just leave it, or try and get a better frame and wheels and stuff and rebuild 1 bike from 2? Oh, and anyway of cleaning the rack up? Its abit dirty, but the bit that lifts up with the spring has rusted all round, the spring is still good though. Thank you.
