What is a relaxy j p Veltro?
#1
Aloha All,
I purchased a relaxy from a friend and I was wondering if anyone knew where in Japan it came from and what U.S. company (I think Bridgestone, but it may be the Japanese business name). It is a retro appearance, belt driven bicycle and generates energy for front and rear light. If I could figure how to post a pic, I would.
Any way, the first job is to get rid of minor rust (stored in an outside shed, in Hawaii, close to shore)and it has a combination of rust and sea salt crud on the metal.
Any and all comments and assistance is greatly appreciated. It talked to me, that's why I bought it, tried to walk away, but it can be a star. I just need advice. No, I've never restored/refurbished a bicycle. Uber Newbie.
Mahalo,
Debi

Looks like an interesting project to take on.

Yes, we need pictures.  Click on the instruction "How to post images and videos" at the bottom of the text entry box.

Looks like things changed. Easiest way to post photos was to hit preview post and a photo section would open. Now a html link is needed to post from a photo server like photobucket.

This is a test, do not have bicycle photo so posting my motorcycle.
