Been repainted very nicely but missing the big seat tube decal with the eagle. I was thinking about painting the upper part of the chrome fork because I thought it should match the rears which are half chrome, but I see yours is the same so it must have been like that originally. I put it together Saturday and took it out for a 65 mile ride Sunday. Very nice riding bike, better than I expected. No pics yet but I will take some and post to my yahoo albums and let the list know. Someone mentioned calling Ernie Clements to find out more about it. I bought a Hetchins from a mate of his a couple years ago. Perhaps I will send him pics of my bike to show Ernie and see what he has to say.
