Local long-time bike shop got the Chopper running good. The 3-speed hub was full of gunk and a broken spring, he had the parts and knowledge to get it to shift. He also replaced the brake cables and routed them correctly, with a flex noodle added. They also had tires in stock that aren't knobbies, I looked on eBay and found some in Australia for stupid money plus stupid shipping, so am very pleased. Shop owner enjoyed working on it, brought back good memories.
So of course took more pictures. Cruised around Prescott's Plaza, because it's level 😅 and makes a good city setting.
