WTB Front Axle for 1927 Tudor

Quebec City is a real gem and absolutely beautiful. Wish I lived a lot closer but Winnipeg is a long way away.

Has any restoration work been done on the front and/or rear ends?

The tires are coming off but the rims will stay with this assembly so only new tires needed to be rolling again?

Where in Canada are you located?
