I'd have to see some better pictures of it, but the hitch parts look orginal. Need to see the wheels and how the seat fastens on.

Hi Jeff,

While the hitch could be original, the metal frame looks newer.
Thanks,

well the wheels are not correct, the seat mounting bolt doesnt look right either, but both of those could be replacements. Are there any tiny holes in the top side of the tongue for mounting a tag? Sometimes it was on the sides or on the bar going up to the seat. Look for tiny rivet holes. Most repo guys dont include them or know about them.

There are no holes for the tag. So, it is a nicely done replica. We are happy with this purchase. I think we were lucky to find such a fine specimen. The workmanship is top quality.
Thanks for the fine detective work and the tips. Who knows what we will find next. We are always looking for the next great find.

Getting closer to paint time. The temp's are right but the humidity is still way to high.

I'm just a "shade tree" painter so I'm at the mercy of Mother Nature.

Nothing wrong with being a shade tree painter. We hope your weather gets drier in your area. We can't wait to see your results.

I think it was Kent who was making repops but he was tagging them as such too. The cast part on the hitch looks original. I have one of his hitches and it is obvious.

Would it be possible to get measurements for the sulky. We are trying to build one but need measurements

Electrolysis is awsome... Have been using it for a couple years now. I use thee 5 gal. pale for smalls and I have a larger tub for bigger parts. I use 6 electrodes and 2 chargers in the big tank.

 

Thanks for posting the info on Electrolysis.   What voltage do you use and what chemical is used?  I have used it for plating small decorative pieces in the past but this is something new to me.

There was a good article done by Daniel (olcowhand) on Removing Rust with Electrolysis.
