The copper tone is a 67 from what I can gather from the serial number and the girls bike is a 74

There were ALOT of vintage bikes at the show this year.
Perhaps we should have a special award for the best vintage bike?
I'm gonna modify a medium '80's BMX bike I have and ride it next year...

After the rust killer,  you can make out the original sticker placement,  can decide whether to paint it or leave it?
The pedals turned out nice
