The bulk of the damage took place to the chain ring and rear hub shifting components. The Sturmey Archer S5 push rod was badly bent, the non-drive bell crank was ground off, and the chain ring was bent.
At this point, I'll wager Fed Ex will refuse to pay for the damages. The seller/shipper was accommodating and fair, but I'll bet Fed Ex walks away from this. Anyway, a weekend's work set most of this straight.
I straightened, smoothed, and blued the push rod.
I straightened the chain ring in a small vice. I also cleaned and smoothed the teeth on the chain ring.
This Sprite's bronze green finish glows nicely.
I matched and patched up the paint finish where needed. I also cleaned and polished the Westrick pattern wheels.
This bike came with a classic Brooks B72 saddle. Cleaning and treatment with Books Proofhide really brought out a nice brown, aged color.
