BALLOON:   Horn repair posted by: Mike on 2/10/2008 at 11:05:32 AM
Is there any way to repair a horn that will not vibrate - the horn is in a spaceliner and appears to be in excellent condition.

Other than taking it apart and tapping on the "speaker" section, I don't know what else you could do.

If you feel it is not rusted it may just be a broken wire on the coil.probably near the end near the soldered connection.Have you tried jumping the batteries directly to the horn.Have you check out the button.

did you get that horn fixed yet? If its an electromagnetic horn does it make a slight "clicking" noise when you press the button?

Can't be sure but I believe lights in the tank would put it around the 60s.What size tires?Are there reflectors on the pedals.

dude, the name would put it around the 60s. Hiawatha was a hardware chain, so it's about even money if it's 60s this is a Murray built. Some earlier ones were apparently Shelby built - there are some references in the archives here. My first question is, do the rear dropouts come to a rear-facing point? Second question is, can we see a picture please?

Depending on how pitted the frame is, it's going to be a bit of work.
1) sand (by and or sandblast if you have access to a blaster) the frame. Do NOT sandblast the fenders or tank
2) you may need to skim coat with bondo
3) An automotive primer - even in a spray can off-the-shelf - is fine for priming.
