I think that project deserves an before and after picture, just to see the rusted old bike and then we can appreciate all the work you did on it, but it looks good, I like that green,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Yes I painted it with 5 coats of aerosol paint then three coats of clearcoat . No it is not metallic. What a job that was but my wife likes it so it was well worth it.

It reminds me of this old John Deere bike that pops up on CL sometimes.

We are moving to North Carolina and don't have the room to take this bike so my wife wants to sell it. Any idea what I can get for it. I contacted Huffy and they said it was a 1968 Cruiser.
