Vintage 1941 Hawthorne Comet Ballooner Bicycle was manufactured by HP Snyder / Rollfast and sold at Wards Department stores. This Gem was a Full Patina Rescue Plus, the Client brought this wonder full bike to me covered in house paint and after considering the costs of full restoration I suggested a Patina Plus Restoration. The Patina Plus is a Lux Low Process that recovers original paint and through a ugly repaint, often with the result is a Unique Distressed Look. At Lux Low if there is any Original Paint we try a Patina or a Patina Plus process first to preserve character then consider full restoration if either of those do not work to satisfaction.
