    safety first. before run, check brakes. even i see some bycicles with the rear wheel with two brakes mounted by his own propietary. a rusty wire could be broken. by other side is not too big. remember the first designs of bycicles with a big wheel in the front. you need to look for a way to start and finish the ride in easy way.

    Love the sound of the cicadas in the background – summer! 🙂

    YouTube: letting people make ‘educational’ videos about things they don’t have a clue how to do themselves!

    Old tires seem to loosen with age. New skinny tires are always tight fitting. The seat height is just about right for you. When pedaling, with you foot’s arch over the center of the pedal, your knee should have a small bend to it; just short of straight. That is for finding the seat measurement. When actually pedaling, the ball of your foot should be over the spindle portion of the pedal. When stopping, you always get off your saddle and straddle the top bar of the frame. Keep working with this bike. All the bearings need grease. Don’t scratch the races until you grease it, oil it, buy a new chain, cables. It has a lot of life in it if you take care of it. My bike channel is on, FLICKR, Michial Chace. I rebulid lots of old machines like this. You can get around so fast on a ten speed. Fix it. You’ll be glad you did. One more tip; Soak rusted parts in ‘white’ vinegar for a week or three. It removes rust. Then use chrome polish on the parts. Good luck.

    I got a bike just like that from the dump once when I was a kid. The guy running it would let us come and get any bikes we wanted. We used to do everything from taking apart coaster brake hubs, repairing bearings. The rear freewheels on a 10 speed where pretty hard though you always needed the special tools to take them apart. always easier to just get a new one. Navel Jelly was always good on the rusty rims. Soak chains in a coffee can of mineral spirits for a few days and it’ll free them up too.

    I have 2 mens and 1 women’s with shimano internal 3sp hub. It their junk they were made by the tons… sorry, buy a nice used bike save yiur money from restoring that and buy you a real used bike



  15. Hugo Stiglitz on July 9, 2019 at 11:33 pm

    I love your accent … I thought you would sand blast the rims, paint the body and replace the rusty chain. Good job either way and your accent is pretty cool



  16. Gerardo Navarro on July 9, 2019 at 11:34 pm

    Holy shit you almost popped the inner tube putting the tire on 😂😂😂😂



  17. ortiko on July 9, 2019 at 11:35 pm

    Nice job. Love it !!! Have done similar project. Check my channel



  18. alejandro loredo on July 9, 2019 at 11:36 pm

    Hahahaha restoration!!!!! Of what? All you did was put 2 new tires with tubes.



  19. Jed Pottery on July 9, 2019 at 11:37 pm

    Your a fucking idiot



  20. Vintage on July 9, 2019 at 11:38 pm

    Please don’t turn it into a mixte !



  21. Nheitan Manarin on July 9, 2019 at 11:38 pm

    The title is restoring a bike but you didn’t restore it,you only change the tires



  22. Brendal's 2nd Google Account on July 9, 2019 at 11:39 pm

    What camera do you use? It looks really crisp and nice.



  23. Amy Louise Herndon on July 9, 2019 at 11:39 pm

    If you haven’t tried it yet, check out electrolytic rust removal. Super easy to do. I’ve been restoring a 1978 VW Bus, and I had to completely tear down and renew all the seat hardware. There was a ton of rust on all the springs, etc… I was able to remove all the rust using water, Arm & Hammer laundry soap, and some electricity. Works great. 🙂



  24. John Burton on July 9, 2019 at 11:41 pm

    Ohhh no you’re ruining a perfectly good chain



  25. Danny on July 9, 2019 at 11:41 pm

    You use the hooks to connect to the spokes



  26. paquitos hammer on July 9, 2019 at 11:42 pm

    Where did you get those antique wrenches from



  27. Bob 69 on July 9, 2019 at 11:43 pm

    Gute Arbeit Rinoa



  28. Fco Ortiz on July 9, 2019 at 11:46 pm

    Es una buena demostracion de lo que no se debe hacer .



  29. Luigi Lozada on July 9, 2019 at 11:46 pm

    Are you kidding?



  30. Chris Harris on July 9, 2019 at 11:48 pm

    That’s an awesome bike. I’d just put some oil on the chain, new cables and brake pads and ride it around. Do the bearings later if you like. Not common to see one piece cranks on a road bike – at least not here in ‘straya mate.

    Гори в аду за то, что бросил его на землю, жопорукое существо. Цепь хотя бы смазал.



  32. Jimi Blue on July 9, 2019 at 11:51 pm

    Are you a boy or a Girl? just aksing.



  33. Aerohunter27 on July 9, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    Where were you able to find the tires? I have a bike the same size from 1973 that in converting to electric with an old tool motor and have everything but the tires. None of my local stores have them. Love your videos 🙂



  34. Taco Sniper Z on July 9, 2019 at 11:53 pm

  35. Haste Gedacht on July 9, 2019 at 11:53 pm

  38. dumbo7429 on July 10, 2019 at 12:00 am

    check frame and forks straight also pedal crank not seized..wheels should be inline look through bike from front and back
    do they line up? take wheels chain off to ‘feel’ bearings



  39. Wendell Duran on July 10, 2019 at 12:02 am

    you haven´t restore a shit you just change the tires and the chain it would be better not to do it the way you did it 9 minutes totally wasted



  40. ignition kidd on July 10, 2019 at 12:02 am

    You didn’t do anything



  41. Herbybandit on July 10, 2019 at 12:02 am

    You hear that thunder? That’s the cycling gods!
    Their really pissed at you for abusing a vintage bike



  42. BBB on July 10, 2019 at 12:02 am

    You shouldn’t call this a restoration if you aren’t going to restore it. Sorry but you don’t seem to know what you are doing.



  43. Ocelot 22 on July 10, 2019 at 12:03 am

    Can I buy the bicycle from you and ship it to the UK



  44. Hermelindo cordova on July 10, 2019 at 12:04 am

  50. Miles Stock on July 10, 2019 at 12:12 am

    i love your shared appreciation for the little clips that hold the tires out of the wheel. i had the same thought when i first saw the hooks
