midnight2past Say hello to my unbelievable cheap find: the Sarasota or Hunchback Steam trunk from the 1870's. I've spent the past few days restoring this beauty and The outside is currently finished. #steamtrunk #trunk #antique #travel #history #diy #restoration 2y
  •   madibyczynski I love it! @midnight2past 2y
  •   joshawamc How much you get this bad boy for !? 2y
  •   midnight2past @joshawamc I got my baby for an amazing $135, bartered down from $190. Couldn't believe how cheap it was, and how I managed to get it for an even better price! :D 2y
  •   joshawamc 135 ! Nice steal! Looks awesome @midnight2past 2y
  •   bobbybushay77 I would love to know if this was in good/fair/bad condition prior to this pic.. I just got one that is in poor conditions but want to restore. Thank you 1y
  •   midnight2past @bobbybushay77 the exterior had peeling and shrinking leather, the oak exterior frame planks were worn and not coated with varnish, the leather handles dry and stretched, and the metal sheets were bent upwards at the corners. I had to moisten the leather bits with leather conditioner you can buy at any furniture or grocery store, then glue them back down with clamps and pressure, hammer down the metal pieces and nails sticking up, repainting the black metal and the gold plating, and then add a thick coat of varnish to all of the wood boards. The interior was tougher, as it was covered in decorative paper from the 19th ce, so I had to moisten the paper with hot water in a spray bottle, and then painfully scrape off all the paper which took about two days because I got frustrated and resented it lol. I then had to spend over a week sanding the lower half of the wooden interior, as it sanded away the left behind glue and paper bits, but also the black mold that had somehow crept into the corners. The lid took another week to repeat the same process, as I was very detailed and sanded every nook. I then applied wood filler to all of the gaps, covered the entire interior with oak veneer, except the lid as it was too difficult because of the curved shape. I then stained the interior a dark color, giving a striking contrast to the golden oak exterior, built a removable tray from oak boards and found antique gold plated handles. I hope this helps! If you need any tips or tricks, just give me a shout :) 6mon

  •   vini_engel @mikesalek oh I remember when you posted this one. So did you have the tank and covers on your brat which was originally blue? That's so cool, how many do you have? 44min
  •   vini_engel @mikesalek I have the same one 74 and same colour but I need a new tank and haven't been bothered to strip it down to do the frame. 43min
  •   mikesalek @vini_engel Ya I put the Orange tank on my blue brat.... I have 10 cb's sitting around the shop and 7 other bikes. 40min
  •   paulm1976 Nice work so far. I like a faithful restore as much as a custom. Probably more with a classy old lady like the 750four 38min
  •   vini_engel @mikesalek do you have anyone to repaint the bike to original flake orange over there? 36min
  •   mikesalek @vini_engel Ya there are a few good body shops here 31min
  •   mikesalek @paulm1976 thanks man 31min
  •   vini_engel @mikesalek I have messaged you on fb, if you can help would be great. The bike is looking amazing, it's a pity we are on opposite sides of the world or I could give you a hand. 21min
