Update. I took her for a spin today!

After getting both pawls replaced, everything tightened, greased, and inspected I put some gas in and fired her up. She still runs as good as ever only it looks brand new. I need to paint the front rims and get new back tires before its complete. I had an issue with the right side decal so I removed it and will get a new one on soon.

Looks good

It should really stand out once you get the proper Rear tires and the front rims painted.

I haven't found any tires around here so I'm not sure where to get them. The front rims are originals with original schenuit tires in excellent condition.

There's a guy on ebay that sells them

They are 4ply and even made in the USA too!

This is what I used on mine.

It's actually close to perfect for 58. 58 was a different yellow than 56 or 57. It's close to john deere but has more cream to it

I got those wheels from a 56. They are on perfect shape and have the original schenuits which is why I bought them.

Well, that explains why they have the orange paint on them :D

I figured it was just a combo of fading and Rust.

Good Eye Wilberj!
