    The biggest question is about the rust. Have it sandblasted. If the frame is rusted through, you can chuck it.

    But it is a nice little project. I restored my first little bike some time ago - a BSA Junior, 20 inch. Had to purchase mud guards in the UK. Cost me more than what a new bike would have cost.

    But glad I did. First grand son is on his way, so he can use it 6 years from now...

    I have a friend that collects things for the Squatters around JHB pretoria. He is actively supported by Afriforum and they provide a bakkie and collection and also do a lot of bicycle fixing sort of stuff as they get quite a few bikes in.

    I am sure he would be very grateful for it in any form, pre or post restoration. It will go to a very under served minority if you consider that route. You are welcome to PM me for his details if you want.
