1928 Automoto restoration

AutomotoThis Automoto was in poor condition. Years of neglect had created much damage, reducing it to a bit of uniform rust. The frame was covered with a dark layer, the components were completely oxidized, the mechanism (hubs, bottom bracket ecc.) were blocked. The first step was to completely disassemble the bike. The parts that were originally chrome have been polished, taking care, however, not to make them too bright not to contrast with the frame that, despite the cleanliness, remained with a worn look. The bike was then greased and reassembled, replacing broken or worn parts. Finally, it was protected with a product to prevent the formation of rust and with gave a bit of brilliance to the whole. Now this Automoto is ready to run again and… to make a good impression!
